WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER IN NORTHFIELD TO DISCUSS HIS LATEST NOVEL, THIS TENDER LAND

Mar 26 2019 1:03 pm
Location: 
Northfield Middle School

Author William Kent Krueger will be at the Northfield Middle School Auditorium on Thursday, April 18 at 7:00 pm to discuss his mystery novels and the writing process.  The event is free and open to the public.

The event is sponsored by the Northfield Public Library and is part of the SELCO Minnesota author tour.  Because Krueger has always drawn a large crowd, the library reserved the Middle School auditorium for the event.  No tickets or reservations are needed.

Krueger writes a mystery series set in the north woods of Minnesota.  His protagonist is Cork O'Connor, the former sheriff of Tamarack County and a man of mixed heritage - part Irish and part Ojibwe.  His work has received a number of awards, including the Minnesota Book Award, the Loft-McKnight Fiction Award, the Anthony Award, and more.
