Under Purple Skies: Events & Readings

Under Purple Skies: The Minneapolis Anthology, was published this month, and launched at the WordPlay Book Festival. In his Minneapolis Star Tribune review, Weston Cutter said, ““In nearly every piece, I almost couldn’t help feeling a little Geiger-like clicking yes! as the city I know and love was described anew, over and over, in ways I’ve never seen articulated.”

Over the summer, and possibly into the fall, you’ll be able to hear writers from the anthology read and discuss their pieces at bookstores around town. Please join us to celebrate the collection and the city the made it possible at the following places:
