Enjoy a lively discussion with four multi-genre, Minnesota Book Award-winning authors: Linda LeGarde Grover, Gary Kaunonen, Margi Preus, and Will Weaver. Moving Words is an opportunity for writers and readers to explore various themes together: the impact of literature in their lives, their connection as fellow Minnesotans, and the lens through which we read. Moderated by University of St. Thomas professor and Minnesota Book Award poetry finalist Chris Santiago. ASL interpretation will be provided. Hosted by the University of St. Thomas Library.

Presented by BNSF Railway Foundation, Moving Words is a program of The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library as the Library of Congress-designated Minnesota Center for the Book. Additional support is provided by the University of St. Thomas Libraries and Graduate Programs in English, Education Minnesota, and made possible in part by the State of Minnesota through a grant to the Minnesota Department of Education and the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
