Join Minnesota author, Colin Mustful, as he provides a book talk at the Wadena City Library on Saturday, March 18 at 11 a.m. Mustful is the author of three novels which tell the story of the people and events surrounding the U.S. — Dakota War of 1862. Utilizing elements of fiction and nonfiction, Mustful writes a unique cross-genre in order to convey this period of Minnesota history in a manner that is both compelling and educational. Learn about Minnesota history, the writing process and the self-publishing experience at this upcoming event. This free Legacy Program is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota's arts and cultural heritage. The Wadena library has his latest book, "Ceding Contempt."
