The library is teaming up with the United Way of the Brown County Area for this year’s Life Living Series, “Telling Our Stories.”
The second event features Minnesotan Kevin Kling, best known for his commentaries on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” and his stage shows such as “Tales from the Charred Underbelly of the Yule Log.” Kling has written a number of books, including “Holiday Inn” and the children’s books “Big Little Mother” and “Big Little Brother.”
This event is free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-served. It is made possible by a grant provided by the Traverse des Sioux Library Cooperative and was funded in part with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
PLYMOUTHREADS has a Mission! - “To spark conversation, find common ground, and foster learning and discovery in Plymouth by rallying readers around a single book.”
In its fifth year, PLYMOUTHREADS has chosen as this year’s book selection, Holiday Inn, by Kevin Kling. It “is a romp through a year of holidays. [It] brings readers into his wonderful world of the skewed and significant mundane.” Mr. Kling tells stories from his own life that “are not merely delightful. They are surprising, wise and redemptive. He is one of our great national treasures” (Krista Tippett). As in previous years, Plymouth Library will have extra community copies of the book, contributed by Friends of Plymouth Library.
Meet the Author, Kevin Kling – Literary Night of Primavera, Sunday, April 6, 6:30 p.m. at Plymouth Creek Center. Mr. Kling will speak and answer questions. The Bookcase of Wayzata will be present offering Kling’s books for purchase while you enjoy refreshments.
