An Evening with Lonnie Dupre, Author of "Alone at the Top: Climbing Denali in the Dead of Winter"
Two Harbors, MN 55616
Meet and mingle with Arctic explorer Lonnie Dupre. Lonnie will share a multimedia presentation about his four attempts to climb Denali in the dead of winter, followed by a book signing. Two of Lonnie's expedition sponsors, Voyageur Brewing and Granite Gear, will be on site for a tasting and "show-and-tell."
What goes through your mind when you’re dropped alone in the middle of the Alaska Range, the cold and darkness surrounding you without another human being for miles? Arctic explorer Lonnie Dupre had made a career out of working in teams to survive in extreme conditions and places most humans wouldn’t dare to tread. In 2010, looking for a new personal and professional challenge, Dupre decided he needed to summit Denali, the continent’s tallest peak—and he needed to do it alone and in the depths of the darkest, coldest conditions on the mountain.
Alone at the Top offers a mountaineer’s firsthand perspective during life-and-death decision making on the mountain. Dupre takes readers along with him as he struggles to keep his mind and body in shape while facing incredible hardships. He applies the lessons learned on the mountain to everyday life.
This event is for ages 21 and up. Price of admission includes two free drinks (beer, assorted soda or bottled water). Books will be available for purchase at the event.
