This morning I had the honor of chatting with presenter Mike Hill on BBC Tees Radio, covering Whitby and northeast England, about my current crowdfunding campaign for a trip to England and a new biography of William Scoresby. I’m excited to share the story of one of the northeast’s famous sons with listeners in the region! I’ll post the link to the radio interview after it airs.
I’m working on a book about my ancestor: a polar explorer and whaling ship captain named William Scoresby whose 200-year-old discoveries are helping today’s scientists understand global warming. I’m raising money for a trip to England to research his letters, and–because environmental progress is in jeopardy these days–write a book that offers valuable insight into climate change, wrapped up in adventure. I’d be so grateful if you checked out my Indiegogo campaign, watched my short video, and spread the word! Thanks!
