Carrie Mesrobian will be the featured guest on the BookEnds Online Edition on Saturday, June 12 at 11:30 a.m. via Zoom.

Mesrobian is the acclaimed author of "Sex & Violence" and "Cut Both Ways," two books that set fire to the unfair stereotypes and contradictions that persist today, according to a Wadena County Historical Society news release. Her most recent book, "The Whitsun Daughters," was named as a 2021 Minnesota Book Awards finalist in the Young People’s Literature category.

Mesrobian's writing has appeared in the StarTribune, Brain, Child magazine, Calyx and other web and print publications. She also teaches at The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis.
