With cookies in one hand and coffee in the other, cozy up to the fire for six weeks of free readings. In its 24th season, the Fireside Reading Series is one of the oldest and most popular events of The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, highlighting the work of some of Minnesota’s finest writers who have published a new work in the previous year.
Marcie Rendon’s debut mystery novel introduces us to Cash, a tough, 19-year-old Anishinabe woman who was taken away from the reservation as a child and grew up in more foster homes than she can remember. Now a farm laborer and pool shark in Fargo, ND, Cash’s life changes when a dead body is found on the Minnesota side of the Red River and her longtime friend, Sheriff Wheaton, enlists her to help solve the case. Rendon, a member of the White Earth Anishinabe Nation, is an accomplished playwright, poet and author of books for children, including Pow Wow Summer.
