As part of SELCO’s Minnesota Book Award Author Tour, author Peter Geye will be visiting the Winona Public Library.
Geye is the author of “Safe from the Sea,” “The Lighthouse Road,” and more recently “Wintering,” all award winning books. “Wintering” tells the story of the Eide family who finds themselves changed forever after their elderly, demented patriarch runs into the wilderness of Northern Minnesota in an attempt to reenact a similar adventure 60 years earlier.
The author received his MFA from the University of New Orleans and his PhD from Western Michigan University, where he was editor of “Third Coast Magazine.” He was born and raised in Minneapolis, where he still lives, and is the proud parent of three great kids.
Geye will be at the Winona Public Library on Thursday, February 22, at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
This event is funded in part or in whole with money from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
