Adventures Across Minnesota

It's harvest time in Minnesota. Time to take advantage of our wonderful fall.

I'm traveling to Perham to give two presentations at Perham High School on the significant contributions Minnesota youth made to World War I food conservation efforts on Friday. Then I'll speak at the In Their Own Words Veteran's Museum of East Otter Tail County. It is Harvest Festival. The topic is WWI food conservation here, too. But the emphasis is on hearing the words of soldiers and soldiers of the soil as they talked about their challenges and successes.

On Monday, Deb Miller and I are off to the opposite corner of the state. We'll drive through apple country to speak at the La Crescent public library. Potluck Paradise, indeed, as the Friends of the LIbrary are cooking from the book in a pre-program potluck.

Happy fall!
