Join us for an evening with Minnetonka native Alex Messenger. He will chat about and sign copies of his incredible memoir, THE TWENTY-NINTH DAY. 


The six-hundred-mile trip into the Canadian tundra was epic from the start:  six young men, three canoes, provisions for 42 days.  Experienced and well-prepared, reliant on one another to survive, their paddling skills put to the test by powerful rivers, the wilderness had never seemed so ancient and so vast.  On The Twenty-Ninth Day, alone on a silent hill, Messenger is attacked by a grizzly bear.  Survival becomes an even more perilous gamble.  From his journals and photographs, Messenger crafts an unforgettable saga with the heart of an artist and the soul of an adventurer.  A brilliant read.  Ann Woodbeck
