Bring Warm Clothes: Letters and Photos from Minnesota’s Past

Peg Meier, longtime and award-winning reporter for the StarTribune, will talk about the recently released new edition of her beloved book Bring Warm Clothes: Letters and Photos from Minnesota’s Past. She uses vintage photographs, newspaper clippings, letters, as well as excerpts from secret diaries and personal journals, to give us a firsthand account of life in those early, challenging days.

In her presentation, Meier will explain how she went about researching the archives and, in doing so, some of the people she encountered – whom she calls “simply amazing.”  Copies of the new edition of Bring Warm Clothes will be available for purchase. Everyone welcome.
