Scout & Morgan Books is pleased to welcome New York Times Bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author William Kent Krueger as he shares his long-awaited companion novel to Ordinary Grace – This Tender Land! Ordinary Grace has won multiple awards: the Edgar Award, Midwest Booksellers Choice Award, the Barry Award, plus so many more! This Tender Land is another unforgettable novel by this amazing author! Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Kent share first-hand the stories behind it and get your First Edition copy, personally autographed that night! In a modern-day epic, soon-to-be-classic, This Tender Land is set in 1932 in a Minnesota summer. Four orphans are forced to set out by canoe towards the Mighty Mississippi for an adventure that will draw everyone in and change lives forever.
Tickets are $10 and are available at Scout & Morgan Books and on our website (see below). Your ticket includes an evening with Kent, wood-fired pizza and salad prepared by our partners, North Folk Winery. Doors open at 5:30 pm and Kent will begin his presentation at 7:00 pm. Arrive early and enjoy food, wine, and music by Fendrick & Peck. Be advised that we will be outside under a large tent for a portion of the evening. There are a variety of seating options available, but feel free to bring your favorite lawn chair if desired.
Note! The release date for This Tender Land is September 3rd, however Scout & Morgan Books is delighted to be the FIRST stop on Kent’s book tour and our event attendees will be the first to get signed copies of the book that evening.
