Beginning with the origins of Finnish sauna, The Opposite of Cold is an exquisite commemoration of the history, culture, and practice of Finnish sauna in the north woods.

A Porch Sofa Almanac is the first collection of Peter Smith’s essays for Minnesota Public Radio. The result is a hilarious, often wry, and always remarkable portrait of everyday life in the Land of 10,000 Lakes that will resonate with Minnesotans from the state’s biggest cities to its smallest towns.

Jay Weiner will be giving a talk and signing copies of his book at the Bookstore at Fitger’s.

This Is Not Florida is the behind-the-scenes saga of the Franken-Coleman Minnesota Senate recount, the largest, longest, and most expensive election recount in American history. In a fascinating, blow-by-blow account, reporter Jay Weiner covers the entire recount. This Is Not Florida presents an unforgettable moment in political history that proved that it’s never really over until it’s actually over.

Jay Weiner reported on the 2008 U.S. Senate recount and election contest for MinnPost.com, a Minneapolis-St. Paul news Web site. For his coverage, he received Minnesota’s prestigious Frank Premack Public Affairs Journalism Award.
