Since June began, every Monday we have had a Minnesota Author at the Library sponsored by our Friends Of The Library. I love these events as it is an author event that takes place three miles from my house, and it is a wonderful way to be able to listen to an author and hear about their writing and their books.
Two Mondays ago, June 9th, I missed Rhonda Foch’s, author of Minnesota Lost Town’s Northern Addition because I was at Camp. This Monday I missed Peter Geye, author of The Lighthouse Road because I was speaking instead at the same time for a local volunteer group about the Friends Of The Library, an opportunity I could not pass up… but really wanted to hear Peter. On the bright side, I was able to meet both authors before I ran to my other commitments.
Next week we have Jess Lourey with her book January Thaw. Should be fun and YAY, I can be there 😉

I find that the best book events seem to be scheduled when I can’t attend. I don’t know how that happens but it usually does! :–)
It is like an evil conspiracy against us Jill…. 🙂
Oh my gosh, I bet Geye was amazing – I’ve heard so much about The Lighthouse Road. Fiction Addiction is having so many events this summer and I’ve had to miss quite a few. I’m bummed every single time.
I heard yesterday that his first book is being bought to be a movie. SWEET!
I love Peter Geye — of course I’ve never met him, but still . . .
I had a great conversation with him yesterday as he left the library and I was hurrying to get back. He has offered to be one of our Wine and Words authors for 2015 *yippee!!!* he was super easy to talk to and down to earth.
I wish my library would host author events. It would be very popular.
Mary do you have a Friends group? This is something our friends group raises money for.
Peter Geye! He’s one of those authors that I keep meaning to read and not making time for. I hope to meet him someday since he’s a Minnesota author.
I did get a chance to talk to him and he is super nice. I have not read his either… but I now have his book 🙂
I LOVED the Lighthouse Road and can’t wait for his sequel to come out. As soon as I closed the back cover of it I went online and ordered his first one (yes, the one they are filming on the North Shore right now). I was glad I was able to attend both of these Brown Bag events. Rhonda Fochs was super interesting and I ended up getting her book for my dad for Father’s Day.
Angie I am so glad you made them! Poo – you could have brought me my book club book! Sorry I missed you! I came back at the very end. I am excited to read his book.
Your work for Friends Of The Library must be so rewarding!!
I live in a little dinky town and even though there are many libraries in the area, it’s not often that we get an author to visit. Just another reason why I want to move to a bigger town and out of the country.
It really is. It keeps me busy but I love to watch it flourish 🙂
