Episode 7: Children’s books of the Boundary Waters and northern Minnesota
The northland has inspired some incredible children’s books that can plant that seed of adventure in a young person’s heart.
We talk to four Minnesota authors and illustrators for a discussion on children’s books related to the Boundary Waters and northern Minnesota. They preview what they have created for the youngest BWCA lovers, and share their own history with the Boundary Waters, and insight into their creative process.
