One to Watch!
Jenna Audlin, a Saranac Lake high school student, has just published a unique and well-made Adirondack Activity Book for kids called Explore More: An Outdoor Activity Book. Since moving to Saranac Lake in 2022, Jenna has been sending her writing to ACW, was recently included in the Wild Words Teen Writing Anthology, and placed in the 100-word story contest held by Eric Bennett’s tenth grade English class last fall.
Last July, Jenna led a workshop at ACW for kids where they drew pictures of natural objects they found outside and then wrote about them. Audin used some of these writings and drawings in her published book, which is for sale at the Book Nook.

Congratulations to LPFF Alum Paul Frederick on His Emmy Win!
At the 46th Annual Emmy Awards ceremony for the Boston/New England Chapter, Adirondack-based director, Paul Frederick, won the Best Historical/Cultural-Long Form Content Emmy for “Return To Auschwitz: The Survival of Vladimir Munk.”
Screened at the 2021 Lake Placid Film Festival, “Return To Auschwitz: The Survival of Vladimir Munk” follows Czech Holocaust survivor Vladimir Munk as he returns to Auschwitz where he was held prisoner during WWII. This is his last chance to honor his family, including his parents, who perished there. The trip from the US is filled with painful memories and unforeseen hardships but it is a journey he knows he must take.
Paul has been a loyal friend and Board Member to Adirondack Film—along with a Documentary Shorts Judge in the 2023 “Your Shorts are Showing” competition at the Lake Placid Film Festival, October 26-29, 2023.
Congratulations to Paul and the entire team behind “Return to Auschwitz” on this monumental achievement!
