Posted in Arts & Culture

Lanesboro Arts Center is hosting writer Sarah Stonich as Artist in Residence for four weeks: Jan. 11 - Feb. 8, 2010. During her residency, Sarah will be working on finishing a volume of essays about northern Minnesota entitled: Shelter: Places Lost and Found. She will also be meeting with a local book club to discuss her most recent novel, The Ice Chorus. The public is invited to a free event: a Reading by Sarah Stonich, followed by a Writers' Discussion Round-table on Wednesday evening, Feb. 3, 7:00 pm at the Lanesboro Arts Center galleries (103 Parkway Ave N, Lanesboro, Minn.). For more information contact Sara at 507-467-2446 or info@lanesboroarts.org or www.lanesboroarts.org.

Internationally-acclaimed Minneapolis author Sarah Stonich is well-known for her fiction novels, These Granite Islands and The Ice Chorus. Sarah's current project is her first full-length volume of non-fiction, an autobiographical collection of essays entitled Shelter: Places Lost and Found. Shelter chronicles her return to northern Minnesota and her struggles there in buying and clearing raw land and building three tiny, Finnish-style structures in an off-the-grid wilderness. The structures are to be a writing retreat, a legacy for her son, and a memorial to her father-who was once a ranger, logger and wilderness guide in what is now the BWCAW (boundary waters canoe area wilderness). Sarah Stonich is the recipient of a Loft McKnight Career Development Grant (2004), a Minnesota State Arts Board Grant (2000), and a Loft McKnight Award for Fiction (1999).
