Reception for the launch of my new book Silence of the North

Morten Hilmer

I am very pleased that I can now invite you to the reception for the release of my book Silence of the North, which is my tribute to our Nordic nature. The book has been on its way for a long time, but it’s only been in the last year that the thoughts about form and content finally fell completely in place for me.

In just over 200 pages I’ve collected some of my favourite pictures, from my time at the Sirius Dogsled Patrol up to today. In short texts I do my very best to express some of the experiences, thoughts and feelings I experienced on the long sled trips, the photo expeditions and on my trips back home in the Danish nature.

Silence of the North is about the greatness of, and the silence that can be found in nature and, therefore, I think it is obvious to celebrate the publication of the book in the wonderful surroundings here in Hanherred, where I live. The reception will be held at my neighbours – Naturcenter Fosdalen, Fosdalvej 69, 9460 Brovst.

You should let the fine clothes stay at home and find the outdoor clothing because, if the weather permits, we will hold the event outside, where the sparkling wine and canapes have been exchanged with organic, locally made sausages and beers. There will also be homemade cake and cookies, tea, coffee and soft drinks.

We will start at 2pm and finish officially at 5pm, but as long as there is wood for the fire and cosy chats, nobody is thrown home. If you are interested in nature photography or a nature enthusiast, I would highly recommend bringing your camera and binoculars because everything now is green, and it’s amazing with the spring flowers in the woods. Find a place to stay overnight and visit some of the amazing natural pearls here in Hanherred and the surrounding areas.

So, in short,

What: Book reception for the publication of Silence og the North

Where: Nature Center Fosdalen, Fosdalvej 69, 9460 Brovst, Denmark

When: Saturday, May 13, from 14:00 to 17:00

In addition to the fact that you can fill your stomach with all the goodies, you can also buy a signed edition of the book. If you have already pre-ordered my book, you can take it home right away – otherwise it will arrive by mail during the following week.

Order Silence of the North now.

Best Regards
