“Moving Words” to Bring Authors Across the State


Moving Words

Writers Across Minnesota

In our role as the Center for the Book, The Friends will host a series of readings and discussions across the state’s 12 regional library systems. Moving Words is an opportunity for readers and writers to explore the impact of literature in their lives, how being a Minnesotan informs these stories, and the lens through which we read.
