Faith Sullivan at Drury Lane TODAY

Join us for a reading and conversation with Faith to celebrate her book "Goodnight, Mr. Wodehouse", recently out in paperback.

Wednesday August 31st

4:30 PM

Outside by the lake, in front of Drury Lane Books on the East Bay of Grand Marais.

One of Minnesota’s best loved writers, Faith Sullivan was born and raised in southern Minnesota, and is the author of five novels set in the fictional town of Harvester, Minnesota: Goodnight, Mr. Wodehouse (2015), Gardenias (2005), What a Woman Must Do (2002), The Empress of One (1997) and The Cape Ann (1988). Before these she published a contemporary fantasy, Mrs. Demming and The Mythical Beast (1988), a thriller, Watchdog (1983) and the humorous Repent, Lanny Merkel (1981, with deep debt, she says, to PG Wodehouse -- and now on Kindle), also all set in Minnesota. Devoted to her readers, Sullivan estimates that she has visited over 1,000 different book clubs to speak about her books.

Sullivan is a longtime creative writing teacher, as well as a stalwart supporter of the Loft Literary Center.

Mary Casanova Writer's Salon @ Drury Lane Books

Mary Casanova will be at Drury Lane Books on Saturday, August 27 at 5:00 p.m. for an event for her two new books, Ice-Out and Wake Up, Island.

Ice-Out returns to the Prohibition-era borderland of Mary Casanova’s beloved novel Frozen, and to the characters who made it a favorite among readers of all ages. Inspired by real events in early 1920s Minnesota, it is a story of young romance against terrible odds and true grit on the border between license and responsibility, rich and poor, and right and wrong.

"A historical novel that makes the past as fresh and compelling as the present, Ice-Out is a story of dreams, determination, loyalty, and the greys that infuse black and white issues. Mary Casanova has created a hero we cheer for as he struggles to surmount obstacles placed before him by the times, by place, and by his own choices." —Lorna Landvik, author of Best to Laugh and Mayor of the Universe

Conjuring the morning life around a cabin fragrant with berry pancakes, this timeless book wakens the child in every reader to the wonders of nature that greet every new day in the charmed world of a northern woodland island.

"Casanova turns in something different with this lyrical look at an island’s start to a brand new day." —Kirkus Reviews
