Authors and Scientists @ the Library
The very first week of the spring semester will be a busy one for visitors and celebrations. On February 10th, Minnesota writer William Kent Krueger will be on campus to speak about his books and discuss the writing process. He is the author of the Cork O'Connor mystery series set in northern Minnesota in the borderlands of Anishinaabe/Anglo culture. Join us February 10th at 2:30 in the Courtyard Cafe to talk with this four-time winner of the Minnesota Book Award. The library is one of the sponsors of his visit; he will also make a public presentation at Trinity Lutheran Church at 7:30 pm as part of the ongoing St. Peter Reads program.
Then on Thursday, February 12th come to the library between 2 and 4 p.m. to celebrate Charles Darwin's birthday. It's the 200th anniversary of his birth, and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species. More information will follow . . . but mark your calendars. The new semester will be here before you know it!
