Over 50-plus years, MPR has been a conduit for regional authors to connect with their readers. With a grant from the National Historical Publications & Records Commission, the Archive team actively identified and digitized the best of these interviews, essays and public appearances. In this collection you will hear the essential voice of Minnesota in authors like Sigurd Olson, Tim O'Brien, Robert Bly, Louise Erdrich and many others. Also included are recordings of visiting authors--non-Minnesotans, but part of our literary pantheon.
This project was funded by the National Historical Publications & Records Commission.
