Mystery author William Kent Krueger will speak at the Monticello Public Library on Thursday, May 16, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Krueger writes a mystery series set in the north woods of Minnesota. His protagonist is Cork O'Connor, part Irish and part Ojibwe. The thirteenth book in the series is scheduled for release in August 2013. "Ordinary Grace" a new novel not a part of the series was just published this spring. Krueger and his books have won many awards including the Minnesota Book Award. He will share his insights and experiences, and everyone is invited. His presentation is funded in part with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
