|‘In the Wake of Shackleton’ set for May 12 |
Norman and Millie Gittinger will host an inning, “In the Wake of Shackleton,” on Tuesday, May 12 at 7pm at the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Library.
In August 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton set out on an exploration to cross the Antarctic Continent on foot – a feat which had not yet been accomplished. While he didn’t succeed in his original quest, his experience became the most remarkable story of survival to ever occur. Despite some of the most difficult circumstances, he didn’t lose a single member of his crew. Norman and Millie Gittinger were privileged to be able to travel to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Elephant Island and Antarctica to see where this journey had occurred and to enjoy the amazing wildlife visible in these remote places.
