The River Falls Public Library, 140 Union Street, will welcome back Jim Ryder for another presentation about his solo dog sled adventuring at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 17 in the lower level community room.

Last January, Ryder spoke about his journey on the Iditarod Trail in Alaska. The upcoming event, called Hudson Bay Dog Sled Adventure, will recap his trip across Ontario, Canada, using a freight sled that weighed over 1,500 pounds at the outset. Ryder will display images and gear, and discuss how he stayed warm and well-fed as he traveled. This event is free and open to all ages.
