Daniel Philippon: Our Neck of the Woods

Meet Daniel Philippon, local author and U of M professor, on Tuesday, November 10 at 4:00 p.m.

Daniel Philippon, local author and University of Minnesota associate professor, will discuss his book, Our Neck of the Woods: Exploring Minnesota's Wild Places, on Tuesday, November 10 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union.

About the book: Learn about Minnesota's best-loved places including the North Shore, Lake Bemidji, the western prairies and grasslands, the Boundary Waters, and the Mesabi Iron Range, from notable writers and conservationists. Drawn from pages of Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Minnesota Conservation Volunteer magazine, these observations and spirited tales beckon Minnesotans to work, play, and explore in the natural places close to their homes and hearts. Our Neck of the Woods explores themes such as embracing winter, making camp, and finding wildness even amid development as the authors tell of hunting, fishing, birding, canoeing, and other great outdoor activities that help define what it means to be Minnesotan.

Philippon will sign copies of his book following the discussion.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to order a signed copy visit www.bookstore.umn.edu/genref/authors.html.
