David Welky, professor of American History at the University of Central Arkansas, is coming to Books in Bloom!
Welky’s most recent book, A Wretched and Precarious Situation: In Search of the Last Arctic Frontier, recounts the epic tale of the 1913-1917 Crocker Land Expedition, seven Americans who embarked on a quixotic quest to explore Crocker Land, a new continent (allegedly) discovered by the famed Arctic adventurer Robert Peary. After enduring blizzards, shipwrecks, starvation, and even murder, they discover that their fate has been wrapped in a tangle of lies.
Please join us in welcoming David Welky on Sunday, May 20.
Books in Bloom is produced by the Carroll and Madison Public Library Foundation.
