*Meet Liv Arnesen in-person!

Polar explorer and educator Liv Arnesen will give a presentation about her new book, Skiing Into the Bright Open, detailing her solo journey to the South Pole. Following the presentation, there will be a moderated discussion and question/answer session with Liv led by Mark Ritchie, former Minnesota Secretary of State and President of Global Minnesota.

A tale of solitary adventure in the bleak and beautiful bone-chilling cold of Antarctica, Skiing into the Bright Open tells a story of gritty determination, thrilling achievement, and perseverance in the face of near despair and daunting odds; it is, ultimately, an object lesson in the power of a dream if one is willing to pursue it to the ends of the earth.

This book talk is hosted by Norway House. The Norwegian Consulate is co-sponsoring the event.
