An Evening With Garrison Keillor and Diane Wilson
Exploring Her Book "Spirit Car: Journey to a Dakota Past"

Read the book. Join the conversation. One Minneapolis One Read is Minneapolis' community read where everyone in town is invited to read the same book. This will be the second year of the citywide "read," where the entire community is encouraged to read a single book and join in a community conversation.

The book is "Spirit Car: Journey to a Dakota Past" by Minnesotan Diane Wilson. Wilson grew up in a Minneapolis suburb and then followed questions about her family's past to South Dakota and Nebraska, where she tracked down information about her maternal relatives through five generations.

The result of Wilson's quest for discovery is "Spirit Car," a book of vignettes she created in her desire to honor the lives of her Dakota family. The story of Wilson's family begins with a vivid account of the 1862 Dakota War in Minnesota and then follows her family members' nomadic travels across South Dakota and Nebraska in their struggle to survive.

Host Garrison Keillor will interview book author Diane Wilson about her book, life and Dakota history, followed by an audience Q & A. Music and dance performances will accompany the discussion, and a light dessert will be served at the conclusion of the event.
