William Kent Krueger, Author Visit

December 1, 2016 from 6 pm - 8 pm

Join New York Times bestselling author William Kent Krueger for a discussion and book signing during this after-hours event.

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, the Barry Award, the Dilys Award, and the Friends of American Writers Prize. His last six novels were all New York Times bestsellers.

Ordinary Grace, his stand-alone novel published in 2013, received the Edgar Award, given by the Mystery Writers of America in recognition for the best novel published in that year. Manitou Canyon, number fifteen in his Cork O’Connor series, will be released in September 2016.
