Hygge Festival

Downtown Grand Marais | Grand Marais MN

You may not yet know the definition of the Danish word hygge (pronounced hoo-gah), but chances are good that you have felt it. Hygge is the Danish ritual of embracing life’s simple pleasures. Feeling relaxed, cozy and surrounded by the warmth of family, friends, community and fire, hygge encourages us to embrace all of winter’s pleasures and unique opportunities.

Voyageur Brewing Company | Grand Marais MN

Join us on Saturday, February 16th from 2-4pm for a presentation by Alex Messenger, author of The Twenty-Ninth Day.

This true-life wilderness survival epic recounts seventeen-year-old Alex Messenger’s near-lethal encounter with a grizzly bear during a canoe trip in the Canadian tundra. The story follows Alex and his five companions as they paddle north through harrowing rapids and stunning terrain. Twenty-nine days into the trip, while out hiking alone, Alex is attacked by a barren-ground grizzly. Left for dead, he wakes to find that his summer adventure has become a struggle to stay alive. Over the next hours and days, Alex and his companions tend his wounds and use their resilience, ingenuity, and dogged perseverance to reach help at a remote village a thousand miles north of the US-Canadian border.

The Twenty-Ninth Day is a coming-of-age story like no other, filled with inspiring subarctic landscapes and a trial by fire of the human spirit.
