The Friends of the St. Paul Public Library and the Minnesota Historical Society are proud to announce online resources supplementing Minnesota’s new literary map. From Your Street to Main Street: Minnesota Writers on the Map was created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Minnesota Book Awards.
The Friends of the St. Paul Public Library website supports a printable version of the map. The Minnesota Historical Society provides a rich collection of biographical notes and select titles list on their Minnesota Author Biographies website.
Free copies of the map are available at libraries around the state. Copies will also be available during the Aug. 28 Read & Ride Day Celebration in Carousel Park, hosted by MELSA.
Minnesota Writers on the Map is funded by the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund through a designation from the Council of Regional Public Library System Administrators, Explore Minnesota (the state’s tourism promotion office) and the Center for the Book.
