Kathleen Novak for "Rare Birds"

  • SubText Books 6 West 5th Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States (map)

Join us in the store on Wednesday, November 29th at 7pm for a reading with Kathleen Novak for her new book, "Rare Birds." Book signing to follow! 

"Rare Birds" tells the stories of an eclectic group of neighbors in a Northern Minnesota iron mining town. Though mythic in tone, the novel explores the microcosm of community, the assimilation of immigrants, the questioning and rebellion of young men, and the ever and timeless striving for something more.

Kathleen Novak is a graduate of the University of Minnesota and author of the highly acclaimed novel "Do Not Find Me," which was a finalist for the 2016 Minnesota Book Award. Her poems have been published in literary magazines nationally and have won recognition in contests as diverse as the AAUW and New York Public Radio. Ms. Novak lives in Minneapolis. For more see
