The second annual all-Minneapolis book club made its selection months ago: "Spirit Car: Journey to a Dakota Past," by Diane Wilson. And now the festivities are beginning to fall into place, beginning with a big launch event at 7 p.m. on Sept. 24 at the Minneapolis Convention Center Auditorium, with Wilson in conversation with Garrison Keillor. Tickets are $10-$5, and you can get them through www.ticketworks.com or by calling 612-343-3390.
Other events surrounding the book (a blend of memoir and fiction, tracing Wilson's Dakota past through five generations) include events various public libraries, the University of Minnesota, and elsewhere. Check out the list at the One Minneapolis-One Read website here.
The "One Minneapolis, One Read" city-wide book club began last year with Michele Norris's memoir, "The Grace of Silence."
