Event description

Description

“The White Darkness” is a powerful true story of adventure and obsession in the Antarctic. Henry Worsley was a devoted husband and father and a decorated British special forces officer who believed in honor and sacrifice. He was also a man obsessed with Ernest Shackleton. In 2008, Worsley set out across Antarctica with two other descendants of Shackleton’s crew, battling the freezing, desolate landscape, life-threatening physical exhaustion, and hidden crevasses. Yet when he returned home he felt compelled to go back. On November 2015, at age 55, Worsley bid farewell to his family and embarked on his most perilous quest: to walk across Antarctica alone.

David Grann is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and an award-winning staff writer at The New Yorker magazine.
