MINNESOTA WRITERS ON THE MAP

From Main Street to Your Street

ABOUT THE MAP

In partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society, The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library is proud to present this collection of writers, from the nineteenth century to today, whose contributions to the state’s literary legacy are profound. While this is not a comprehensive list, the authors who were chosen have had a meaningful impact on the state, its writing life, and in many cases, the world at large. The magnitude of Minnesota's literary legacy is dificult to put down on paper, and our attempt is only the start of an expanding project. For more information on each of the authors listed, as well as new developments, visit www.thefriends.org.

 

Authors were chosen by staff of The Friends and the Minnesota Historical Society. This project was made possible, in part, with support from from Minnesota’s Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
