Brian Freeman Comes to Rum River Library

Date: Apr 7th, 2014

Brian Freeman will speak at Rum River Library on Monday, April 7 at 7:00 p.m. as part of the Club Book program.

Club Book, a program of the Metropolitan Library Service Agency (MELSA) and coordinated by Library Strategies, the nonprofit consulting group of The Friends of the St. Paul Public Library, is bringing best-selling and award-winning national and regional authors to library communities across the seven-county metropolitan region.

“Ever wonder what motivates a writer to write what they do?” said Anoka County Commissioner Jim Kordiak. “Here’s your chance to ask!”

Brian Freeman is Minnesota’s own master of the psychological suspense genre.  He is best known for his internationally acclaimed Jonathan Stride detective series, set in and around Duluth.  The newest installment, The Cold Nowhere, debuts on April 1

“Learn what it takes to write a suspenseful novel,” said Library Board Vice President Melanie Keister, “His mysteries set in northern Minnesota will give you chills.”

Rum River Library is located at 4201 6th Avenue NW in Anoka. This program is free and open to the public but seating is limited.  Seating is first come, first seated.  Books will be available for purchase and signing.

This Club Book event is hosted by Anoka County Library and is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.  For more information about Club Book events visit For more information about this or other Anoka County Library programs call 763-576-4695.
