The Delaware County Historical Society and the Friends of the Delaware County District Library
are hosting William Kent Krueger,
a New York Times bestselling author,
at The Barn at Stratford
on April 27, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.

William Kent Krueger is the New York Times bestselling author of This Tender LandOrdinary Grace (winner of the Edgar Award for best novel), as well as eighteen acclaimed books in the Cork O’Connor mystery series, including Desolation Mountain and Sulfur Springs. He lives in the Twin Cities with his family.

When Krueger decided to set his series in northern Minnesota, he realized that a large percentage of the population was of mixed ancestry. In college, he had wanted to become a cultural anthropologist; he became intrigued by researching the Ojibwe culture and weaving the information into his books. His books are set in and around Native American reservations. The main character, Cork O’Connor, is part Ojibwe and part Irish.
