The Frederick Cook Society will and Sullivan County Museum hosts “FA Cook, Reimagined” on Saturday, June 17 from 4 – 7 PM at the museum in Hurleyville, NY.
Three speakers will present: author Darrell Hartman, curator Laura Kissel from the Byrd Polar Center at the Ohio State University, and Carol Smith, Executive Director of the Cook Society.
Dr. Cook wrote several important books about his polar expeditions and many articles on a vast array of topics, from Inuit health, to world hunger and climate change. A quiet, reflective man, Cook’s literary works were not just about his life, but about life itself.
