  • Author Rosemary Dunn Moeller grew up devouring books by Thor Hyerdahl, Tim Severin, Richard Henry Dana Jr., Herman Melville, and when she saw her first penguin, she knew she had to see more.  Setting her goal to see Antarctica, she traveled from her “summer” home in South Dakota to the wild seas and icy crisp temperatures (a balmy 28 degrees Fahrenheit one day) of the southernmost tip of the world. Join her on Tuesday February 21 at 7 p.m. to hear the story behind her new book.
    The program is free and light refreshments will be served.  Thanks to the Friends of the Jonathan Bourne Public Library for sponsoring the “Author of the Month Series”.
