Friends of the Festival
Author of the New York Times best-selling Cork O'Connor mystery series and the 2014 Edgar Award-winning novel "Ordinary Grace," William Kent Krueger was raised in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon and briefly attended Stanford University before being kicked out for radical activities. After that, he logged timber, worked construction, tried his hand at freelance journalism and eventually ended up researching child development at the University of Minnesota. He makes his home in St. Paul, Minnesota, and does all his creative writing in a couple of wonderfully funky local coffee shops.
His new book is "Sulfur Springs."
