Jessica Luther presents Unsportsmanlike Conduct: College Football and the Politics of Rape

This event will be hosted at the Saint Paul Athletic Club 340 Cedar St.

"Luther's well-researched book speaks powerfully to the complicated landscape of sexual assaults on college campuses--including the greedy interests at play in denying it--and provides us a much-needed road map for instituting effective change. I highly recommend this book for anyone who believes that student safety should matter more than athletic success, and that we all have a role to play in assuring that it does."--Ben Strauss, coauthor of Indentured: The Inside Story of the Rebellion Against the NCAA

Susan Koefod launches her YA novel Naming the Stars

16-year-old Mary-Louise comes home from swimming lessons one day to find she is absent from family photographs, her bedroom has turned into a linen closet, and all of her possessions have disappeared. More troubling, her family goes on as if she never existed. The only person in town who can actually see her is a boy she calls Fish, a YMCA swimming instructor, but Fish is hiding from a troubled past and the person he sees is entirely different from who she thought she was.

Peter Geye presents his awesome novel Wintering

This event has been moved to the St. Paul Athletic Club at 340 Cedar St.

A highly acclaimed novelist now gives us a true epic: a love story that spans sixty years, generations worth of feuds, and secrets withheld and revealed.

"The last time I read a literary thriller so profound Cormac McCarthy's name was on its spine. But Peter Geye is his own man and Wintering is as unique and menacingly beautiful as its Minnesota borderlands setting."-- Richard Russo
