Fireside Reading Series: Jon Lurie - "Canoeing with José"

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Hamline Midway Library

With cookies in one hand and coffee in the other, cozy up to the fire for six weeks of free readings by some of Minnesota’s finest writers. | January 24 - February 28 | See the full series lineup here. 

The first time journalist Jon Lurie met José Perez, the smart, angry, 15-year-old Lakota-Puerto Rican drew a knife and questioned Lurie’s authority. Five years later, both men are floundering. Lurie is newly divorced and depressed. Perez is embedded in a haze of women and street feuds. Then Lurie hits upon a plan to save them both: embark together on a mythic 2,000-mile paddle from Breckenridge, MN, to the Hudson Bay. Written in gritty, honest prose, Canoeing with José describes their remarkable journey. Lurie has worked as a journalist, wilderness guide, and as a teen adviser at a Native American journalism program. He is also the coauthor, with Clyde Bellecourt, of The Thunder Before the Storm

Series presented by The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Fireside Reading Series: Kaethe Schwehn - "The Rending and the Nest"

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Hamline Midway Library

With cookies in one hand and coffee in the other, cozy up to the fire for six weeks of free readings by some of Minnesota’s finest writers. | January 24 - February 28 | See the full series lineup here. 

In Kaethe Schwehn’s mesmerizing postapocalyptic debut, 95 percent of the world’s population has disappeared without a trace. The 5 percent who remain must struggle to survive in a ruined world with no understanding of what has happened or why. Through the eyes of her young narrator, Schwehn creates a vision of the future which Kirkus Reviews called “intensely familiar, yet strange”—a place in which inhabitants must reimagine their existence again and again and remake the world from what they have left. Schwehn is also the author of Tailings: A Memoir, winner of a 2015 Minnesota Book Award, and a poetry chapbook, Tanka and Me. 

Series presented by The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
