Minnesota Books and Authors Collection

Subscribe to Minnesota Books and Authors Collection Stories from the MPR Archive

Over the past 40 years, MPR has been a conduit for regional authors to connect with their readers and for the past year, the Archive team has been actively identifying and digitizing 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 Erdich and many others. Also included are recordings of visiting authors--non-Minnesotans, but part of our literary pantheon.

This project has been funded by the National Historical Publications & Records Commision.
