Join us to uncover the story of Ernest Shackleton’s attempt to be the first to cross Antarctica. Shackleton and his crew left in 1914 and would not return until two years later, having never set foot on the continent. What the crew achieved during the voyage is an extraordinary tale of survival and endurance.The talk will include descriptions of the enormous travails and obstacles Shackleton and his crew faced during the expedition. The fascinating story of what happened after they reached the Antarctic Circle made Shackleton, his crew, and the Endurance legends in maritime exploration.Ruth Fowler is well-traveled in her own right. She has visited locals from the top of the Earth, down to Antarctica, and many places in between. Fowler spent twenty-five years as an English and Creative Writing teacher in Houston, New Orleans, and Los Angeles. For the past twenty-one years she has worked as a therapist in West Houston.
