MN Reads: "Minnesota’s Geologist: The Life of Newton Horace Winchell" by Sue Leaf

Author Sue Leaf on how her writing group keeps her honest, on the unexpected appearance of John Beargrease Sr. in her story (he was a mail carrier, too) and why she may never go back to "in-person" book launches (as opposed to online ones) again.

Sue will be hosting an event around her new book this evening (Thursday, June 25) at 7:00pm in partnership with Zenith Bookstore and Cafe Scientifique Twin Ports.

The information on how to attend the online event is here.

Minnesota’s Geologist: The Life of Newton Horace Winchell is published by the University of Minnesota Press.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. 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.
