We take pride in bringing some of the state’s most talented to our communities across the region. This week, we are excited to keep it going with a special round of author visits and a one-of-a-kind kids musician. Read on for all the details:
Monday, Sept. 9, 6:30pm
Pine City Public Library
Meet chef and cookbook author Beth Dooley, a 2016 Minnesota Book Award finalist for her novel, In Winter’s Kitchen. She also has covered the local food scene in the Northern Heartland for 30 years, contributing to the Taste section of the Star Tribune, KARE 11 and MPR News. All ages welcome. No registration necessary.
Moving Words: Writers Across Minnesota
Thursday, Sept. 12, 3:30pm
Cambridge Public Library
Enjoy a lively discussion with four multi-genre, Minnesota Book Award-winning authors: Cori Doerrfeld, David Housewright, Wing Young Huie, and Anne Ursu. Moving Words is an opportunity for writers and readers to explore various themes together: the impact of literature in their lives, their connection as fellow Minnesotans, and the lens through which we read. Book sales provided by Scout & Morgan Books. The program is recommended for those of school age to adults. No registration necessary.
Music & Stories with Duke Otherwise
Saturday, September 14, 10:30am
Chisago Lakes Area Library
Using his clever songs and unique showmanship, Duke Otherwise engages and inspires children (and adults) of all ages. He has been entertaining for years with his guitar, tap shoes and distinct singing voice. His original songs will make you laugh, clap, dance and interact. Duke has performed all across the country, with some international touring, as well. All ages welcome. Tickets are now available for pickup at the library.
These programs are funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
