MUSH! with Karen Land

January 30, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Have you ever wondered…what does it feel like to ride the runners behind a team of dogs, steering a loaded sled through mountainous terrain, crossing the vast Alaskan tundra, hugging the shoreline of the great Bering Sea? What does it take to care for a team of Alaskan huskies? Could my dog be a sled dog, too?

Musher, Karen Land, will answer these questions and more when she and Noggin, her Alaskan husky, visit the Montrose Regional Library on January 30 at 6:00pm. Everyone is welcome to attend! Meet Karen and Noggin, take pictures, inspect the sled equipment, and ask questions.  A free storybook about Iditarod racing will be available to families with young readers (while supplies last). This program is brought to you by the STARNet STEAM Equity Grant and the American Library Association.

Land is a writer, public speaker, and three-time participant in the 1000-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race as well as many other sprint and endurance races in Alaska, Canada, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Maine. Since 2000, Land has traveled to nearly every state with her Iditarod dog sled, mushing gear, Arctic clothing, and beloved dogs, giving over a thousand school and public library presentations
