Brunch @ the St. Peter Book Festival


The St. Peter Book Festival will feature a brunch with local authors. Attendees will enjoy a keynote address from William Kent Krueger, author of the Cork O’Connor mystery series, who will introduce his new stand-alone novel, Ordinary Grace. 

In addition to Krueger’s talk, the brunch includes a moveable feast of authors to meet, and a scrumptious meal.

The cost is $20.00. Register through Community Education for the brunch – and don’t delay, as seating is limited.

About Ordinary Grace [from the publisher]: 

All the dying that summer began with the death of a child . . .

New Bremen, Minnesota, 1961. The Twins were playing their debut season, ice-cold root beers were selling out at the soda counter of Halderson’s Drugstore, and Hot Stuff comic books were a mainstay on every barbershop magazine rack. It was a time of innocence and hope for a country with a new, young president. But for thirteen-year-old Frank Drum it was a grim summer in which death visited frequently and assumed many forms. Accident. Nature. Suicide. Murder.

Frank begins the season preoccupied with the concerns of any teenage boy, but when tragedy unexpectedly strikes his family, which includes his Methodist minister father, his passionate, artistic mother, Juilliard-bound older sister, and wise-beyond-his-years kid brother—he finds himself thrust into an adult world full of secrets, lies, adultery, and betrayal, suddenly called upon to demonstrate a maturity and gumption beyond his years.

Told from Frank’s perspective forty years after that fateful summer, Ordinary Grace is a brilliantly moving account of a boy standing at the door of his young manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him. It is an unforgettable novel about discovering the terrible price of wisdom and the  enduring grace of God.
