Libraries have books for kids. Books for kids have authors. In 2016, look for Minnesota based authors for youth to check in at Anoka County Library in the “Youth Authors in Anoka” series. The series kicks off with picture book author Mike Wohnoutka at Rum River on Saturday, January 16 from 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Erin Soderberg Downing, Molly Beth Griffin and John Coy will also appear. “The Library has hosted authors for adults in the past, so this is an exciting new venture,” said Anoka County Library Board President, Dan Greensweig. “We hope kids will be excited to meet some of their favorite authors.” At each event, the author will read from their works, discuss their writing process, and answer questions. The author visits are funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
