Award-winning mystery author, William Kent Krueger, the author of this year's One Book South Dakota pick, will discuss his book "Ordinary Grace". The author will also be autographing copies of the book.
A resident of St. Paul, Krueger has long been known for his mysteries set in Minnesota’s North Country, including the award-winning Corcoran O’Connor series. “Ordinary Grace,” while incorporating elements of mystery, departs somewhat from his earlier work to examine issues of spirituality and loss of innocence. Set in a small town in southern Minnesota, the book is told from the point of view of a boy standing at the door of his young manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him.This program was made possible by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
