Joe Lasher, 7, of Evanston, plays with sled dog, Noggin, during a talk given by three-time Iditarod racer Karen Land of Indianapolis at the Ferdinand Branch Library on Saturday. Land has spent the last 19 years traveling around the U.S. giving talks about her experiences racing the Iditarod, a 1,000 mile dog sled race held in Alaska. “I like the idea of kids listening and experiencing something for real,” Land said. She added that getting kids excited about the outdoors and inspiring others to get involved is one of her favorite parts.
