Renowned author William Kent Krueger will be hosting an exclusive book signing and author reading event in Anoka. This highly anticipated event will showcase his latest release, "The River We Remember," offering attendees the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of Kent's acclaimed novel. Kent's journey as a writer began in the picturesque Cascade Mountains of Oregon. Although his education at Stanford University was short-lived due to his involvement in radical activities, this setback only fueled his determination. From timber logging to freelance journalism, Kent explored various fields before finding his calling in child development research at the University of Minnesota. With almost five decades of marriage to a retired attorney, Kent has found unwavering support from his remarkable wife. Together, they call St. Paul their cherished home, where Kent draws inspiration for his mystery series set in the captivating north woods of Minnesota. The series follows the life of Cork O'Connor, a man of mixed Irish and Ojibwe heritage who previously served as the sheriff of Tamarack County. Kent's exceptional storytelling has garnered numerous accolades, including the Minnesota Book Award, Loft-McKnight Fiction Award, Anthony Award, Barry Award, Dilys Award, and Friends of American Writers Prize. Notably, his last nine novels have all earned the coveted distinction of becoming New York Times bestsellers. In 2013, his stand-alone novel "Ordinary Grace" received the prestigious Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America.
