Summer Book Club: Endurance

June 24, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

Endurance (by first-time book author Alfred Lansing) is a book about the true story of Ernest Shackleton’s South Pole adventure/fiasco; an incredible treatise of persistence and positivity despite despair, with great lessons on leadership, teamwork, looking out for each other across differences (economic backgrounds, social status, experience, age, personalities, countries of origin), and learning from failure. We’ll also look at the amazing historical images taken by the photographer, Frank Hurley, that were part of an American Museum of Natural History’s exhibition. Come be inspired!  (with guest facilitator Susi Varvayanis, BEST Program Director).

RSVP Only: closes 5/24/2019
