Local Authors Book Signings: Leif Enger, Margi Preus and Vern Northrup
Each Saturday between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Zenith Bookstore hosts local authors for book signing events throughout the day.
11 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Leif Enger’s Virgil Wander explores new beginnings against all odds for the inhabitants of a hard luck town. Other books by Enger include the best-selling, award-winning Peace Life A River, and So Brave, Young, and Handsome.
1 p.m. to 3 p.m.: Margi Preus is the author of the Newbery Honor book Heart of a Samurai and other books for young readers, including the Minnesota Book Award-winning West of the Moon and the Midwest Booksellers Choice Award book The Clue in the Trees.
3 p.m. to 5 p.m.: Duluth author and photographer Vern Northrup is a photographer and visual storyteller Akinomaage is the Ojibwe word for what Northrup seeks to do with his photography and is the title of the book he’s recently released. As an interpreter, educator, and learner, Northrup wants to gain knowledge from the earth. Using only the camera on his smartphone, Northrup captures the setting of where he grew up with the aim of creating a nostalgia for those familiar with the area and a curiosity for those who aren’t.
