Author Event: “Last Entry Point” with Joe Friedrichs

Date: May 25, 2024

Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Location: Split Rock Lighthouse

Event Description

Get ready for summer backcountry adventures with journalist and podcaster Joe Friedrichs and buy a signed copy of his new book, Last Entry Point. Drawn from his in-depth interviews with survivors and first responders as well as from personal experience, the essays in this book detail how one’s luck in the Boundary Waters can turn on a dime, providing cautionary tales of how to stay safe when hiking or canoeing.

The St. Louis County Timberjay praises Last Entry Point: “When tragedy strikes in the wilderness, the details are typically limited. Brief press statements from local law enforcement offer little but the bare facts. . . . Friedrichs has gone well beyond the press statements to learn more. . . . It’s fast-paced and it is bound to connect with anyone who has spent time in the canoe country.”

Joe Friedrichs founded the award-winning “Boundary Waters Podcast” and is the author of Her Island: The Story of Quetico’s Longest Serving Interior Ranger. Friedrichs reported on a number of accidents in the Boundary Waters while working for WTIP, the local radio station in Grand Marais, and he’s interviewed many emergency personnel.
