On Wednesday, September 7, 2016, the fourth annual Tea at the Naniboujou Lodge will be sponsored by Cook County Higher Education.  Each Tea has featured Dr. Karen I.

The first presentation will be on June 11th at 6:30pm.  "Born To Be King" surveys the unique realities faced by various heirs to the English throne for almost 1,000 years. The presentation will be held at Cook County Higher Education 300 West 3rd Street Grand Marais, MN 55604
