Armchair Traveler:  Where the West BeginsMedora, North Dakota

Thursday, March 11 • 1-2:30 PM

Janet Byrnes will share the stories of her road trip to Medora, North Dakota, where she, her partner Kevin Odefey, and his parents took in all that Medora has to offer. This weeklong adventure included hiking and driving through Theodore Roosevelt National Park, testing the local restaurants, and enjoying the famous Medora Musical. They stayed in beautiful Airbnbs in Medora and in Jamestown on the way there and in Fargo on the way back. This was a relaxing vacation and one that was filled with amazing sites in often overlooked North Dakota.

Books-Cheese-Wine with Author Jonathan C. Slaght:  Owls of the Eastern Ice

Thursday, March 18 • 3-4:30 PM via Zoom

The Blakiston's fish owl is as tall as a fire hydrant and has wings that unfold to more than six feet. It is the largest owl in the world. Minneapolis wildlife biologist Jonathan C. Slaght spent five winters in far eastern Russia, studying the owl's habitat and working to determine what it needs to survive. Slaught examines how those needs can be balanced by the needs of the loggers and fisherman who also live there and, like the owls, depend on the trees and rivers for their livelihood. Laurie Hertzel from the Star Tribune says, "Slaght's beautifully written book—longlisted for the National Book Award—is a tremendous read, a book that entertains and thrills as well as teaches." Join us for time with an engaging author and lively conversation!
