Congratulations to Professor Jon K. Lauck. The Washington Post just released a very favorable review of his latest book, From Warm Center to Ragged Edge: The Erosion of Midwestern Literary and Historical Regionalism, 1920-1965.
In his review, reporter MIchael Didra says, "From Warm Center to Ragged Edge is scholarly — there are as many pages of notes as of text — and Lauck does favor long sentences, which may take getting used to. But this is an important book and these days, especially, deserves to be read and debated."
Lauck is the founding president of the Midwestern History Association, the co-founder and Associate Editor of Middle West Review, and an adjunct professor of history and political science at the University of South Dakota. He has also authored seven books. From Warm Center to Ragged Edge: The Erosion of Midwestern Literary and Historical Regionalism, 1920-1965 will be officially released by University of Iowa Press on June 1.
Nine years-ago this May, people throughout the state of Minnesota were captivated by the adventure two young men from Chaska decided to embark on right after their early graduation from high school. Sean Bloomfield and Colton Witte were in the beginning stages of a 2,200 mile canoe trip from Chaska to Hudson Bay in Canada.
In honor of the successful trip's anniversary, a book about their trip titled Adventure North was recently released. This summer the men, who are now in their late 20s, are touring the state to talk about their book, and the lessons learned on their journey. They are also making good on a pledge they made to inspire others to seek their own adventures.
Bloomfield and Witte appeared on the KARE TV 4 p.m. newscast in Minneapolis on May 23 to talk about their book and tour, which includes the following stops in May, June, July and August:
Saturday, May 13 - 11:00am - Waconia, MN Library Presentation
