Sep 17 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Enjoy a lively discussion with four multi-genre, Minnesota Book Award-winning authors: David Housewright, Gary Kaunonen, Julie Klassen, 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. ASL interpretation will be provided.

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, Harlan Boss Foundation for the Arts, Northern Lights Library Network, and 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.
