Main Street Weekend for October 17
Sunday, October 17, 2021 - Two authors and their continued search for identity. We start with Tom Rademacher. He’san English teacher and Minnesota’s Teacher of the Year in 2014. His new book, “Raising Ollie,” is the story of his nonbinary, art-obsessed child; a new school where Ollie could flourish; and how raising Ollie led the author into insights about himself. ~~~We visit with Minnesota author Linda LeGarde Grover, author of Gichigami Hearts: Stories and Histories from Misaabekong. It’s a collection of twelve loosely connected essays and autobiographical stories that orbit around Linda’s family’s history and Ojibwe life in Duluth, Minnesota in the twentieth century. ~~~ Biologist Chuck Lura shares a Natural North Dakota essay on chipmunks.
