McKnight Center for Book Arts Information Session: It's no doubt possible to be a reader and a lover of books without knowing anything about "book arts," but since the McKnight Foundation is funding two $25,000 fellowships "which will allow Minnesota book artists to set aside time for study, reflection, opportunities, new projects, experimentation, and exploration," it might be worth looking into it a little more. The Duluth Art Institute is holding an informational session about the fellowships on Thursday, and you can also spend some little time looking around the Minnesota Center for Book Arts online.

Annie's book pick this week is Hot, Cold, Heavy, Light by Peter Schjeldahl:  "100 writings—some long, some short—that taken together form a group portrait of many of the world’s most significant and interesting artists."

Finally, our conversation with Dr. Kate Beane this morning about the Minnesota Historical Society's Our Home: Native Minnesota exhibit leads nicely into an article called Do's and don'ts of reporting on Indigenous art by Jarrette Werk and Jaida Grey Eagle, a piece that offers even viewers of Native art a different insight into talking about it.

She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
