Join National Geographic Adventurers of the Year, educators, and authors Amy and Dave Freeman in celebration of their debut book, A Year in the Wilderness, a passionate and beautifully illustrated account of a year in the Boundary Waters. Special guest musician and poet Ben Weaver will perform and join the conversation. Presented by Milkweed and Subtext Books.
The Trakl siblings were gifted and troubled: Georg a poet, Grete a pianist, and both gone at a young age. Inspired by their mysterious and intense relationship, the winner of the 2017 Lindquist & Vennum Prize for Poetry is a keening exploration of desire between brother and sister, poet and subject, the living and the dead.
This Jake Adam York Prize winner is a vivid portrait of the artist as a young woman. At every step, these poems seduce with history, folklore, and sensory detail—grilled meat, golden habañeros, and burnt sugar—before delivering clear-eyed and eviscerating insights into power, deceit, relationships, and ourselves.
September marks one year since Dave and Amy Freeman left the Boundary Waters and returned to civilization. Join Milkweed Editions and the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters to celebrate this special anniversary and the release of Dave and Amy Freeman’s new book A Year in the Wilderness.
A much-beloved former Minnesotan poet returns to the Twin Cities to present Feverland, a new memoir that celebrates life even as it candidly and vividly presents the suffering of pain, illness, addiction, and abuse. Lemon will read from his "memoir in shards" and discuss his process developing the book. At this special event, Lemon will reveal all about how he came to inhabit (and write) the strange place called Feverland.
