I’m happy to have a short piece in this year’s Saint Paul Almanac. It’s a personal piece, short and light, about an ancestor of mine who was married at the Cathedral in 1919 in a society wedding complete with white peonies and Lohengrin , and then stolen from his own reception by cowboys on horseback (“grimly grasping their revolvers” according to the newspaper report), forcing his brand-new in-laws to pay a ransom for his release. As part of this work, I’m taking part in two of the St. Paul Almanac’s reading series events. Come out and say hello!
Any questions, email me for details!
