Special Notes

Updates on Festival Events and Activities:

Anne Enright

On September 13, 2023, the Twin Cities-based literary organization Rain Taxi presented a virtual event with acclaimed Irish author Anne Enright as the kickoff to its annual Twin Cities Book Festival; Enright discussed her new novel, The Wren, The Wren (Norton), with celebrated American author Francine Prose. In this unique book launch for the U.S. publication of the novel, the two writers discussed how the book came to be, the role of poetry in it, the anti-Romantic stance of Irish women writers, and more. A replay of the event (with optional closed captions) is free to view at Rain Taxi’s YouTube channel.

Keith Ellison

A previously announced guest, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, is no longer able to appear at the 2023 Twin Cities Book Festival due to a scheduling conflict. However, copies of his book, Break The Wheel, will be available for purchase at the Magers & Quinn Booksellers booth (signed copies while supplies last).
