Solo through the Inside Passage: Mon Jul 4

Inside: One Woman's Journey through the Inside Passage. Monday July 4, 2016, 7:30 pm at the Ag Hall.

Susan Conrad is an adventurer, writer, educator, and speaker, as well as an accomplished paddler. Her tenacious explorations by sea kayak have fuelled her stories and images that have appeared in Sea Kayaker, Canoe and Kayak, Adventures Northwest, and Figure magazines.

Inside: One Woman’s Journey through the Inside Passage is Susan’s first book based on her solo paddle from Anacortes to Juneau Alaska. In spring 2010, with her world scaled down to an 18-foot sea kayak and the 1,200-mile ribbon of water known as the Inside Passage, Susan Conrad launched a journey of the sea and soul that took her both north to Alaska and inward, as she discovered the depths of her own strength and courage. She paddled marathon distances for weeks on end, forged friendships with quirky people in the strangest of places, and pretended not to be intimidated by 700-pound grizzly bears and 40-ton whales.

This opportunity to hear her story and see her beautiful images is not to be missed. Susan’s book will be available for purchase.
