Noon. Author Janet R. Collins will sign copies of her book “On the Arctic Frontier: Ernest Leffingwell's Polar Explorations and Legacy.” A November 1897 presentation by Norway’s famous explorer, Fridtjof Nansen, sparked Ernest Leffingwell’s lifelong passion for the Arctic. Collins’ book reveals a meticulous and detailed explorer who made journal entries in pencil and often used abbreviations and initials, leaving her with much to decipher.
