The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County presents History Sundays with Steve Stark, an illustrated history program series for all ages at the Hjemkomst Center. Like a story book unfolding before your eyes, Steve Stark tells fascinating stories about people in history while drawing charcoal caricatures on a 30-foot roll of paper.
Carl Ben Eielsen, a pilot from North Dakota, became a rugged adventurer in the Alaskan wilderness. He embarked on epic flights over the North Pole in 1927 and died two years later on a rescue mission in Siberia. Come learn more about the life and death of Carl Ben Eielsen. His life is what Hollywood movies are made of.
Stark will present on Carl Ben Eielsen on Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 1 pm at the Hjemkomst Center, 202 1st Ave. N. in Moorhead.
