Hey, It is the weekend!!
I am ready to do the hippity, hip, hopping, blog hop and am trying the Friday follow this weekend as well. Welcome to all my visitors!
Jennifer at the Book Blogger Hop has a question to answer every week and this week's question is: Tell us about some of your favorite authors and why they are your favorites!
Oh Boy this is a really hard question and I am not good at commitment but I will list my favorite Minnesota authors:
1. I love Louise Erdrich. She has written so many good books and her stories all intertwine but are also great as stand alone novels. Plus she writes about Native American culture and issues and places all of her novels here in the Midwest where I live. She owns a bookstore in Minneapolis called Birch Bark Books and it is a lovely store.
2. Stanley Gordon West. Excellent author. I met him at a bookstore in Saint Paul and asked him if he would speak to my high school classes, he said yes! When I told him what school I taught at, he responded that his granddaughters went to the same school. One was in my class! His books are great, and he is self-published.
3. Faith Sullivan. I love her. She was a teacher in Minneapolis and I have met her as well. A lovely lady. Her books are so entertaining. Lark from THE CAPE ANN is one of my favorite characters in literature. I wish she would write faster as I can't wait for her next book!
There are lots of great Minnesota authors, maybe I will do a future post on them.
Have a happy weekend!!
