White Bear Lake’s Big Wood Brewery to Host Launch Event for Marlin Bree’s Bold Sea Stories 

   (White Bear Lake) - Imagine sailing into a storm in a 10-foot homemade boat while attempting to cross the Pacific Ocean, or surviving 100 mile per hour winds alone in the open cockpit of a small sailboat as the storm of the century hits. One of the Twin Cities most award-winning nautical writers has recounted these amazing true tales in his new book, Bold Sea Stories: 21 Inspiring Adventures, published by Marlor Press. 

   Author Marlin Bree will celebrate the launch of Bold Sea Stores: 21 Inspiring Adventures, on  Wed., April 22, 2020—Earth Day—at White Bear Lake’s Big Wood Brewery, located at 2222 4th St, White Bear Lake, MN 55110. The party goes from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m., and features an opportunity to meet Marlin Bree in person and get a signed copy of his book. Everyone who buys a book for $15 at the event will get a ticket for a free craft beer from the brewery. The event is co-sponsored by Lake Country Booksellers of White Bear Lake. 

   In Bold Sea Stories, Marlin Bree tells 21 rousing true-life tales of notorious storms, shipwrecks and doomed crews fighting incredible challenges and undergoing transformative, inspirational beauty. Bree is the author of numerous nautical books including In the Teeth of the Northeaster, Wake of the Green Storm, Broken seas, and, with Gerry Spiess, wrote Alone Against the Atlantic. He is a former newsman with the Minneapolis Tribune and a past president of the Minnesota Press Club. 

   The nautical nonfiction tales are told with a master mariner’s insights with an emphasis on quick-paced, full-bodied tales that have a dramatic narrative, strong characters, and (usually) inspiring conclusions.
