A Saturday Signing: Meet Dave Kenney and Thomas Saylor, authors of "Minnesota in the 70s"


Common Good Books gives you to chance to meet great authors throughout the holiday season. Stop by, say hello, and get a book inscribed to that special someone on your shopping list.


The 1970s were more than big hair, mirror balls, and leisure suits. Kenney and Saylor’s book tells the stories of people, places, and events that defined the state: colorful individuals, including Allan Spear, Arlene Lehto, Wendell Anderson, and Herb Brooks; significant groups like the Willmar 8, American Indian Movement, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, and Save the Met; and news-making events, including the first Earth Day, the Dayton’s bombing, school desegregation battles, and highway construction protests. Richly illustrated with evocative photos, cartoons, and ephemera, this book helps bring the 1970s back to life.


Please note: This event is a signing only. There will not be a formal reading or presentation.
