Book Talk: Skiing Into the Bright Open, by Liv Arnesen

August 12 @ 6:00 pm CDT

/ Free

Presented by Norway House, join us for a free virtual and in-person discussion with Norway House’s 2020 Going Viking Honoree Liv Arnesen as she presents her new book “Skiing Into the Bright Open,” which details her solo journey to the South Pole.

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.

Following the presentation will be a moderated discussion and Q&A session with Liv led by Global Minnesota President Mark Ritchie.


Copies of “Skiing Into the Bright Open” will be available for purchase at the event.

Presented in partnership with Norway House.
