A Private Wilderness has been out for nearly two months and is doing great, according to the marketing people at the University of Minnesota Press. And for me, it has been fun, too.
I’ve had several radio and newspaper interviews and two big online book events, one sponsored by the Listening Point Foundation and the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute, the other by Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness. You can watch the latter event below.
August will see two more events. On Thursday, August 19 at 7 p.m. I will join a virtual event with the Ramsey County Historical Society and the Roseville Public Library. If you wish to be part of this free event, please register here.
On August 24 I will participate in several events in Ely. At noon I’ll be giving a talk at the Grand Ely Lodge, part of a weekly program put on by the Tuesday Group. Then from 1:30-3 p.m., give or take a little, I’ll be at Piragis Northwoods Company to sign books. Later on at around 4:30 p.m. I’ll attend a reception hosted by Northeastern Minnesotans for Wilderness/the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters at their new headquarters on Sheridan Street.
Here’s the video from the June 10 event sponsored by the Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness:
