Edina Reads features Minneapolis author

Minneapolis author and teacher Paulette Alden, who wrote the novel “The Answer to Your Question,” is the Edina Reads speaker from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday at the Fireside Room in the lower level of the Edina Public Library.

Alden’s book explores how well we’re able to know those we love, why our deepest attachments are not always predictable ones, and the mystery of why we do the things we do. Books will be available for purchase.

For more information, visit Edina Reads on Facebook.
