Join SubText Books on Wednesday, July 17th at 7:00 PM for an event for “Under Purple Skies: The Minneapolis Anthology” with editor Frank Bures and contributors Sarah Stonich, Kevin Kling, and Peggy “Pearl” Zambory. Book signing to follow!

In recent years, Minneapolis has become a literary powerhouse. In Under Purple Skies: The Minneapolis Anthology, we collect some of the most exciting work being done in, or about, Minneapolis and the Twin Cities area, with narrative threads that stretch back not just to Scandinavia, but across the world. The writers here have won, or been shortlisted for, the Newbery Award, the Man Booker prize, the Pulitzer, the Caldecott Award, the National Book Award, the Minnesota Book Award and many others. They included Kelly Barnhill, Marlon James, Kao Kalia Yang, Michael Perry, Bao Phi, Danez Smith, Shannon Gibney, and many more, alongside new and first-time writers.
