Books: Into the Woods

The annual Books in the Woods weekend offers discussions, nature activities and great food.

For the past 16 years, book lovers from across the Midwest have made their way to Gunflint Lodge in Grand Marais for a long weekend of reading, discussion and scenery. The annual Books in the Woods event, co-sponsored by Stillwater’s Valley Bookseller, includes facilitated discussions, guided nature activities and author talks. This year’s featured authors are Nicole Helget and Allen Eskens, who will give presentations followed by book signings.

Kathleen Eddy of Valley Bookseller says the weekend is always fun and laidback, and the food and lodging from Gunflint Lodge are top-notch. All-inclusive packages for the weekend are $414 per person, which includes three nights in a fireplace cabin, all meals, and all programs and activities.
