2Minnesota Writers this week

Danielle Sosin's novel "The Long-Shining Waters" won the Milkweed National Fiction prize this year.  Publisher's Weekly said, "Sosin writes sensuously detailed prose and distills the emotions of her characters into a profound and universal need for acceptance and love." 

Danielle will be our guest this week and we'll talk about the draw of Lake Superior, for her personally and as a writer.

Also happening this week - Minnesota writer Amie Klempnauer Miller will join us to talk about "She Looks Just Like You - A Memoir of (Nonbiological Lesbian) Motherhood".  In it Amie searches for a way to describe her role.  She's like any first time parent with anxieties and challenges.  But she also faces things that not every parent does - as a nonbiological mom she had to stand before a judge to adopt her own daughter.
