2018 Women’s Expo

The second annual Friends of the Frankfort Library Women’s Expo will be on March 17, 2018 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.  There will be over 20 women owned businesses represented.  We will have a list of available vendors soon. Each vendor will donate an item to be put in our raffle.  

Speakers Chosen for the Women’s Expo

Amelia Earhart will be coming to the Frankfort Community Public Library. The Women’s Expo will be partnering with the Daughters of the American Revolution to bring Leslie Goddard to the Elizabeth O’Rear Skanta Theatre to do her portrayal of Amelia Earhart. Leslie Goddard will be performing at 10 a.m. It’s her life’s work to bring memorable women from the past alive and to tell historical stories so that lessons from the past are more meaningful and powerful.

The Women’s Expo’s second Speaker will be Karen Land, three time Alaskan Iditarod participant. In March 2002, Karen Land made her first appearance in the Iditarod and finished the race in just under 14 days. She went on to compete in the Iditarod in 2003 and 2004. Completing the Iditarod is among the most difficult feats in all of sports. More people have reached the summit of Mount Everest than have made it to the Iditarod finish line behind a team of dogs. Karen will speak at 1 p.m. in the Elizabeth O’Rear Skanta Theatre on March 17, 2018.
