Twin Cities Book Festival

The Twin Cities Book Festival is back in person this year, free and family friendly.  Stop at the Ramsey County Historical Society's booth to meet the creators of Grasshoppers in My Bed. Author-historian Terry Swanson shares insights on writing historical fiction for young readers, and illustrator Peggy Stern shows how she imagined the drawings that young Lillie Belle Gibbs could have made.  The festival runs from 10 to 5 with author events and programs for all ages.
