Entertainment briefs - April 6 edition

Nathan Jorgenson to speak at Book Ends April 8

Nathan Jorgenson, Minnesota author/dentist is the April guest at Book Ends, the monthly meet-the-author event at The Uptown in Wadena. Jorgenson has published three novels — Waiting for White Horses, The Mulligan, and A Crooked Number. When not writing, he practices dentistry at Reuter Family Dentistry in Wadena.

Jorgenson's stories combine pathos and humor in topical plots set in Minnesota. His latest, A Crooked Number, weaves themes of young love, grad school and amateur baseball into a rich and tender coming-of-age story. The story is set in a Minnesota town that could be Wadena. Jorgenson was the 2004 winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best New Voice in Fiction.

Book Ends begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 8 at The Uptown. One hour of conversation is followed by Q&A, book sales and autographs and lunch. The event is free. Lunch is on the attendee.

Book Ends is hosted by An Open Book. For more information, call Gillette Kempf at (218) 632-2665 or
