A Book Festival Worth the Drive

Recently, I was pleased to participate in a wonderful small-town book festival in Hackensack, MN. It’s amazing that a community of this size (about 300 people), which is way-y-y up in north-central Minnesota between Brainerd and Bemidji, can pull off a fantastic event featuring authors and artists from all over the region. Kudos to the Northwoods Arts Council for making the 23rd annual Northwoods Art & Book Festival a hidden gem.

Not a cloud in the sky! The haze is from smoke drifting in from Canadian wildfires.

More than 30 Minnesota authors filled this room. A wide variety of genres were represented.

If they’ll have me, I’ll be back in 2019! 🙂
