POSTPONED: Iric Nathanson presents Minneapolis's Lake Street

This event will be postponed to a date in May 2020. Watch this space or the Facebook page for updates as they are available!

As it cuts across South Minneapolis, Lake Street reflects the city’s diversity and its rich history. Initially a narrow dirt road out beyond Minneapolis’s early city limits, Lake Street evolved into a major transportation route after the turn of the last century. Spurred by the city’s population boom during those early years, the Lake Street corridor soon filled in with retail shops, restaurants, movie theaters, and auto dealers. But Lake Street’s role as a major commercial corridor did not last. Buffeted by the forces of suburbanization after World War II, businesses along the corridor began to close, leaving Lake Street pockmarked with vacant, blighted buildings. Then, starting in the 1990s, the seeds of the corridor’s renewal were planted when an energetic group of new arrivals to the United States began renovating Lake Street’s deteriorating storefronts for their family-owned businesses. Lake Street’s rejuvenation has continued into the current century as business and community leaders build on the work begun by those 20th-century urban pioneers.

Iric Nathanson writes and lectures about Minnesota History. His 2010 book, Minneapolis in the Twentieth Century , was a finalist for a Minnesota Book Award. Nathanson’s articles have appeared in a variety of local publications including Minnesota History, Hennepin History and the Star Tribune. He writes a history feature for the on-line daily MinnPost and serves as a commentator for Twin Cities Public Television.

Tuesday, April 14, 7:00pm The Parkway Theater (4814 Chicago Ave. Minneapolis MN 55417)

POSTPONED: Peter Geye launches Northernmost, in conversation with Curtis Sittenfeld

Due to recommendations regarding large events, and the suspension of all Parkway Theater events through April, this event has been postponed. Please stay tuned to this space for further details.


Acclaimed novelist Peter Geye celebrates the release of his newest book, Northernmost, a thrilling ode to the spirit of adventure and the vagaries of loss and love. The event will include a special raffle with proceeds supporting The Loft Literary Center.

In 1897, Odd Einar Eide returns home from a near-death experience in the Arctic only to discover his own funeral underway. His wife, Inger, stunned to see him alive, is slow to warm back up to him, having spent many sleepless nights convinced she had lost both him and their daughter, Thea, who traveled to America two years earlier but has yet to send even a single letter back to them in Hammerfest, their small Norwegian town at the top of the earth.

More than a century later, Greta Nansen has finally begun to admit to herself that her marriage is over. Desperately unhappy and unfulfilled, she makes the decision to follow her husband from their home in Minnesota to Oslo, where he has traveled for work, to end it once and for all. But on impulse, for reasons unknown even to her, she diverts her travels to Hammerfest: the town of her ancestors, the town where her great-great-grandmother Thea was born–and for some reason never returned to.

Braiding together two remarkable stories of love and survival, Northernmost wades into the darkest recesses of the human heart and celebrates the remarkable ability of humans to endure nearly unimaginable trials.

POSTPONED: Julie Jo Severson presents Secret Twin Cities

This event has been postponed. We are currently working on rescheduling possibilities in Summer 2020. Watch this space or the Facebook page for updates as they are available!

Where can you view a rare handwritten letter by Mozart in the same building where a notorious gangster was once chained to a radiator? Whose remains are stored inside a suitcase on the upper shelf of a local German bar? Where is there a park hidden 120 feet below street level, and why is it the subject of an opera? What’s the story behind the world’s largest Lite-Brite, the Lyndale Park Peace Garden zigzag bridge, and the city bus stop with giant steel flowers sprouting from it? The answers to these and many more questions about Minneapolis and Saint Paul are found within the pages of Secret Twin Cities.

The Twin Cities metropolitan area invites visitors and locals to revel in nature, art, science, history, innovation, and with this book as your guide—a bit of the unexpected. You’ll play a musical sidewalk railing, stand exactly halfway between the Equator and the North Pole, and explore the spot many Dakota people consider to be the center of the earth.

Weaved into delightful narratives by local writer Julie Jo Severson, Secret Twin Cities is a treasure chest of offbeat, extraordinary gems and legacies. Whether you’re a local or here for a visit, you’ll broaden your Twin Cities itineraries, bucket lists, and trivia vaults.

Minnesota native Julie Jo Severson grew up dreaming of working in a newsroom like Mary on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. These days she’s a freelance journalist and editor living in a Minneapolis suburb with her husband and three teens. With a longtime passion for preserving life’s rich and whimsical stories before they fade away, Severson launched the blog Carvings on a Desk, cocurated the anthology Here in the Middle, and works with individuals to record their personal histories for future generations.

Postponed: Caroline Stevermer launches The Glass Magician

This event has been postponed. A reschedule is pending. RSVP on Facebook or follow this event for future updates!

New York 1905: The Vanderbilts. The Astors. The Morgans. They are the cream of society—and they own the nation on the cusp of a new century. Thalia Cutler doesn't have any of those family connections. What she does know is stage magic and she dazzles audiences with an act that takes your breath away.

That is, until one night when a trick goes horribly awry. In surviving she discovers that she can shapeshift, and has the potential to take her place among the rich and powerful. But first, she'll have to learn to control that power...before the real monsters descend to feast.

Caroline Stevermer is best known for her historical fantasy novels, particularly for her Scholarly Magic series (A College of Magics, A Scholar of Magics, and When The King Comes Home), which Terri Windling said had, "sly wit and sparkling prose that have earned her a cult following". She is also the author of River Rats, which was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults and received the Golden Duck Award and Golden Kite Award. Stevermer graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a degree in art history and currently lives in Minnesota.

Eva Moreimi presents Hidden Recipes: A Holocaust Memoir

Please note that this event has been postponed to May 3, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Before the Second World War, Ica (Elena) and Ernő (Ernest) each lived a comfortable life in Czechoslovakia. Their lives were shattered by Nazi cruelty, prejudice and devastation. Hidden Recipes tells the story of their will and determination, and their struggles to survive. By sharing stories about their lives when food was abundant before the war, Ica secretly wrote down hundreds of recipes that she and her fellow inmates shared. Ironically, many of the delectable recipes were written on the reverse sides of papers that carried information about ammunition that was manufactured and used to annihilate the Jews during the Holocaust. Ernő spent several years in various Hungarian forced labor units, where he was required to perform strenuous manual labor. He courageously escaped with the help of righteous people, which saved his life. Hidden Recipes is a story of endurance, will to survive, courage, faith and finding joy and happiness again. 

Eva Moreimi grew up in Czechoslovakia as an only child to two Holocaust survivor parents. Shortly after graduating from Economic School, she escaped from the communist regime and immigrated to the United States. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband close to their three children and six grandchildren. She enjoys reading, practicing yoga, traveling, cooking, baking and spending time with her family and friends.

Poetry Reading with Joyce Sutphen and Connie Wanek

This event has been postponed to Sunday, May 17 at 5:00pm. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you then!

Joyce Sutphen's evocations of life on a small farm, coming of age in the later 1960s, and traveling and searching for balance in a very modern world are both deeply personal and familiar. Readers from Maine to Minnesota and beyond will recognize themselves, their parents, aunts and uncles, and neighbors in these poems, which move us from delight in keen description to something like wisdom or solace in the things of this world.

In addition to poems selected from the last 25 years, Carrying Water to the Field includes more than forty new poems on the themes of luck, hard work, and he ravages of time--erasures that Sutphen attempts to ameliorate with her careful attention to language and lyrical precision.

Joyce Sutphen grew up on a farm in Stearns County, Minneasota. She is a professor emeritus of English at Gustavus Adolphus College and is Minnesota's poet laureate. She is the author of seven poetry collections.

Connie Wanek was born in Wisconsin, raised in New Mexico, and lived for over a quarter century in Duluth, MN. Wanek’s poems have appeared in Poetry, The Atlantic Monthly, The Virginia Quarterly Review, Great River Review, Poetry East, Water-Stone, and many other publications over the years. In 2006, US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser named her a Witter Bynner Fellow of the Library of Congress. She served as a co-editor with Joyce Sutphen and Thom Tammaro on the comprehensive anthology, To Sing Along the Way: Minnesota Women Poets from Pre-Territorial Days to the Present, which appeared in 2007 from New Rivers Press. Author of four books of poetry, Wanek also published a book of prose, ten stories, called Summer Cars with Will o' the Wisp Press in 2014. Forthcoming from Candlewick Press is a children’s book of poetry co-written by Wanek and Ted Kooser.

Connie Wanek was deeply honored to receive the George Morrison Artist of the Year Award, which recognizes an individual artist whose body of work has made a significant contribution to the arts in Northeastern Minnesota. And in 2017, a wildflower trail in Duluth’s Hartley Nature Center was named in her honor.

Jack Zipes launches The Castle of Truth and Johnny Breadless

This event has been postponed until June 16. RSVP or follow this event for future updates. Thanks for your understanding, and we hope to see you all there!

Hermynia Zur Mühlen (1883–1951), one of the twentieth century's great political writers, was not seemingly destined for a revolutionary, unconventional literary career. Born in Vienna to an aristocratic Catholic family, Zur Mühlen married an Estonian count. But she rebelled, leaving her upper-class life to be with the Hungarian writer and Communist Stefan Klein, and supporting herself through translations and publications... Altogether, Zur Mühlen wrote thirty novels, mysteries, and story collections, and translated around 150 works, including those of Upton Sinclair, John Galsworthy, and Edna Ferber. A wonderful new addition to the Oddly Modern Fairy Tales series, The Castle of Truth and Other Revolutionary Tales presents English readers with a selection of Zur Mühlen's best political fairy tales, some translated from German for the first time. In contrast to the classical tales of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, Zur Mühlen's candid, forthright stories focus on social justice and the plight of the working class, with innovative plots intended to raise the political consciousness of readers young and old.

//

During World War I at Christmas time in 1914 there were sudden widespread unofficial ceasefires along the Western Front organized by the French, British, and German soldiers. They crossed trenches to exchange food, souvenirs, and ideas. In some cases they played soccer, sang Christmas carols, held burial ceremonies, and exchanged prisoners of war. The ceasefires were also held at various places in 1915. However, by 1916, the war had become more bitter, and the officers in the French, British, and German armies squashed the ceasefires. Killing was much more important than peacemaking.

Paul Vaillant-Couturier (1892–1937) was one of the French soldiers among those who celebrated truce. As a young man from a well-to-do bourgeois family in Paris, he had never thought he would one day fight for France and kill Germans. His parents were successful singers and actors, and as he indicated in his fictional autobiography, he was groomed to become a professional lawyer or engineer. However, he followed in his parents’ footsteps and became an artist. Yet, after enlisting in the French army and serving in the infantry and artillery, he came to realize how cruel war was and caused the deaths of thousands of young men who sacrificed their lives to protect the interests of the ruling classes. By the time he was dismissed in 1919, he emerged as a pacifist and socialist with five medals of honor for heroism. From this point of his life, he went on to become a major journalist and politician; he was one of the founders of the French communist party and served as editor of the left-wing newspaper L’Humanité. He died in 1937 due to wounds from an assassination attempt.

Concerned about the future of young people, Vaillant-Couturier published numerous books about the war, and one of his most significant works was Jean sans pain (Johnny Breadless, 1921). It describes a much different education than he had received, for Johnny Breadless is an orphan and does not understand why and how his parents died and why there is no help for him. It is only after he encounters an amazing rabbit who takes him on a trip to various parts of France during World War I that Johnny begins to grasp the true conditions that lead to the exploitation of common people and to wars that benefit the rich. It is in this remarkable fairy-tale novel that a ceasefire takes place—one that gives Johnny hope that people can live together in peace. It is a truce that Vaillant-Courturer "waged" for most of his life.

Jack Zipes is the translator of The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm and editor of The Sorcerer's Apprentice (both Princeton), as well as editor of The Great Fairy Tale Tradition (Norton). He is professor emeritus of German and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota.

Kaia Preus presents The War Requiem

THE WAR REQUIEM blends memoir, research, and historical fiction in order to explore Benjamin Britten’s dynamic piece of choral and orchestral music, War Requiem, Op. 66. Written to commemorate the new Coventry Cathedral’s consecration (following World War II bombing), Britten's composition blends the Latin Mass for the Dead with nine poems by Wilfred Owen. Just as Britten’s piece pulls together many threads and subjects, this book braids three separate stories of Britten, Owen, and the author, to better understand the process of art-making and the lasting effects of both art and war.

Kaia Solveig Preus teaches writing in Minneapolis. She received her MFA from Hollins University and is a 2019 Author Fellow through the Martha's Vineyard Institute for Creative Writing. Her work has appeared in Barely South Review, The Briar Cliff Review, The Drum, Pleiades, and Watershed Review.

Alison McGhee presents The Opposite of Fate

The Opposite of Fate brings together themes of bodily autonomy, women’s rights, and making exceptionally difficult decisions. The story follows twenty-one-year-old Mallie Williams—scrappy, headstrong, and wise beyond her years—who has just landed on her feet following a tumultuous youth when the unthinkable happens: she is violently assaulted. The crime leaves her comatose, surrounded by friends and family who are hoping against hopes for a full recovery.

But soon Mallie's small community finds themselves divided. The rape has left Mallie pregnant, and while some friends are convinced that she would never keep the pregnancy, others are sure that a baby would be the only good thing to come out of all of this pain. Who gets to decide? How much power, in the end, do we have over our own bodies? Mallie, her family, and her town find themselves at the center of a media storm, confronting questions nobody should have to face. And when Mallie emerges from the fog, what will she think of the choices that were made on her behalf?

Alison McGhee's best-selling novel Shadow Baby was a Today Show Book Club pick, and her picture book for adults, Someday, was a #1 New York Times bestseller. She is the recipient of many fellowships and awards, has three grown children, and lives a semi-nomadic life in Minnesota, Vermont, and California.

JP Gritton presents Wyoming

It's the tail end of the '80s and Shelley Cooper is in trouble. He's broke, he's been fired from his construction job, and his ex-wife has left him for their next door neighbor and a new life in Kansas City. The only opportunity on his horizon is fifty pounds of his brother's high-grade marijuana, which needs to be driven from Colorado to Houston and exchanged for a lockbox full of cash. The delivery goes off without a hitch, but getting home with the money proves to be a different challenge altogether. Fueled by a grab bag of resentments and self-punishment, Shelley watches things go from bad to worse to (maybe) good enough.

JP Gritton's awards include a Cynthia Woods Mitchell fellowship, a DisQuiet fellowship and the Inprint Donald Barthelme prize in fiction. His stories have appeared or are forthcoming in Black Warrior Review, Greensboro Review, New Ohio Review, Southwest Review, Tin House and elsewhere. His translations of the fiction of Brazilian writer Cidinha da Silva are forthcoming in InTranslation. Wyoming is his first novel.

POSTPONED INDEFINITELY: Ander Monson presents Gnome Stories and I Will Take the Answer, in conversation with Patrick Nathan

This event has been postponed indefinitely. We are working to reschedule in late summer or fall of 2020 if possible. Thank you for your interest in this event, and we apologize for any inconvenience!

In The Gnome Stories, Ander Monson presents eleven unforgettable stories about oddly American situations. His characters are loners in the truest sense; in the process of recovering from mental, physical, or emotions trauma; finding solace--or at least a sense of purpose--in peculiar jobs and pursuits. A man whose wife left him is robbed, so he decides to start doing his own breaking and entering into his neighbors' homes. When another man's girlfriend is cryogenically frozen by her family after a car accident, he becomes a maintenance worker at the cryogenic facility, eavesdropping on visitors as they whisper secrets to their frozen loved ones. A woman serves as an assistant to the Starvationist, whose methods to help clients lose large amounts of weight are unorthodox, sadistic--and utterly failproof. Another woman and her robot assistant have become hired to tinker with the troubling memories inside a celebrity's brain. The stories are as surreal as an urban legend and at the same time perfectly mundane.

In I Will Take the Answer, a book of essays, Monson grapples deeply with the idea of connection. In the opening essay, which extends across the book in brief subsequent pieces, a trip through a storm sewer in Tuscon inspires Monson to trace the city's relationship to Jared Lee Loughner, the gunman who shot Gabrielle Giffords and killed six bystanders, along with how violence is produced and how we grieve the dead. With the formally inventive "I in River," he ruminates on water in a waterless city and the structures we use to attempt to contain and control it. Monson also visits the exuberantly nerdy kingdom of a Renaissance Faire, and elaborates on the enduring appeal of sad songs through the lens of March Sadness, an online competition that he cofounded, an engaging riff on the NCAA basketball tournament brackets in which sad songs replace teams.

Ander Monson is the author of Letter to a Future Lover and Vanishing Point, and is also a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. He lives in Tuscon, where he teaches at the University of Arizona.

POSTPONED INDEFINITELY: Sarah Kendzior presents Hiding in Plain Sight

Unfortunately, this event has been postponed indefinitely. We are working to set up a new date later in 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience.

President Donald Trump is often portrayed as a doddering narcissist who lucked his way into office and has wreaked havoc like a bull in a China shop ever since. St. Louis-based journalist and expert on authoritarian states Sarah Kendzior is here to dismiss that dangerous misconception and set the record straight: Donald Trump’s presidential run was nothing short of a calculated effort in the works for decades, and, once in office, Trump set in motion a plan to drive the United States into the ground for personal profit.

In her unflinching hardcover debut HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT: The Invention of Donald Trump and the Erosion of America, New York Times bestselling author Kendzior unveils a startling portrait of the way foreign powers and organized crime have infiltrated our democracy, setting the stage for an autocratic leader like Donald Trump to take power.
Kendzior follows Trump decade by decade, from 1980s tabloid king and real estate tycoon to early aughts reality show star to the invention of today’s Tweeting politician, but she also illuminates what was happening in the shadows, behind all that glitz and glam, from changes in legislation that undermined democracy and shifts in the media landscape that paved the way for politics to become an arena for the rich, the famous, and the crooked. Her work draws on varied sources in the public record—including a 1984 Washington Post interview in which Trump discusses his desire to forge an alliance with Russia, evidence of Russia’s interference with the 2016 presidential election from NSA whistleblower Reality Winner, and the philosophy of Hannah Arendt—to uncover the threat that has been hiding in plain sight for decades.

As someone who has always been in the wrong place at the wrong time, Kendzior sits in the perfect vantage point to tell this story. She worked at the New York Daily News when print media was on the brink of collapse, lived in New York City when the Twin Towers fell and in St. Louis when Michael Brown was shot, and studied media and authoritarianism right as Trump emerged using the very same tactics as post-Soviet dictators. And now, she is a mother raising children who will inherit a nation forever changed, and who wonder aloud, “Why did no one stop people from doing bad things?”

HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT gives readers an in-depth, comprehensive narrative to hold on to in the shifting sands of a 24-hour news cycle driven by click bait, drawing connections between events that span nearly forty years. In this bitingly honest book, Kendzior takes her singular commitment to speak the truth from the digital space, where she has over half a million followers on Twitter, to the printed page to document whispers of criminal activity and leave a record for generations to come.

Sarah Kendzior is best known for her reporting on St. Louis, her coverage of the 2016 election, and her academic research on authoritarian states. She is currently an op-ed columnist for the Globe and Mail and she was named by Foreign Policy as one of the “100 people you should be following on Twitter to make sense of global events.” Her reporting has been featured in many publications, including Politico, Slate, The Atlantic, Fast Company, The Chicago Tribune, TeenVogue, and The New York Times.
