Meeting at Jaffrey 15-17 June The SouthPole-sium

26 Jun

This was fantastic! About 60 delegates: authors, artists, mountaineers, collectors, dealers. A real meeting of minds and the hospitality and entertainment provided was fantastic too. All organized by Rob Stephenson of the Antarctic Circle. Jaffrey is a very attractive town and of course, New Hampshire is well known for its beauty.

Richard Pierce had a book launch for his new book ‘Dead Men’ which went well and many delegates contributed. To mention a few presentations, there were talks on the Japanese expedition to Antarctica of 1910, Tom Crean, The Falkland Islands, Antiquarian Collectors, Tristan da Cunha, The Scott Polar Research Institute, also beautiful Arctic images. It was a real meeting of minds. The emphasis was on short presentations and much discussion.

I spoke on Edgar Evans and also made a presentation in the ‘Toadstool Bookshop’ in nearby Peterborough.

It was a great occasion!
