Every year at the Twin Cities Book Festival, we begin the day with a meet-and-greet session honoring Minnesota authors who have published a book within the past year.  Since we can’t gather in person this year, we decided to convert our annual Mingle into a Mashup, inviting authors with new releases to film themselves describing their work in two minutes or less in a setting that means something to them.  We then assembled their videos by genre into the montages below. Be warned, you will surely be charmed by one or more of these Minnesota writers! 

Books by the authors are available from Magers & Quinn Booksellers, and don’t forget to enter code TCBF20 to support Rain Taxi and get entered in the Festival Raffle!
