Minnesota Stories with Kevin Kling tour of North Central Minnesota

Web posted February 28, 2023
Kitchigami Regional Library System is hosting Kevin Kling for a tour of North Central Minnesota Monday, March 27th through Friday, March 31st!

Best known for his popular commentaries on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” and his storytelling stage shows, Kevin Kling delivers hilarious, often tender stories that have delighted audiences around the country. Kling’s autobiographical tales are as enchanting as they are true to life: hopping freight trains, getting hit by lightning, performing his banned play in Czechoslovakia, growing up in Minnesota, and eating things before knowing what they are.

Kevin Kling has been awarded numerous arts grants and fellowships. The National Endowment for the Arts, The McKnight Foundation, The Minnesota State Arts Board, The Bush Foundation, The Jerome Foundation and others have recognized Kling’s artistry. In 2014 Mayor RT Rybak named Kevin "Minneapolis Story Laureate”.

Spend time with Kevin for these FREE events as he shares new stories and reads from his very popular books, "The Dog Says How", "Holiday Inn", "Big Little Brother" and "Big Little Mother". No advanced tickets or registration necessary.

He will be presenting in Brainerd, Pine River, Walker, Bemidji, Park Rapids and Wadena. Please  contact your local library for more information, or visit our website at www.krls.org.

This free Legacy Program is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
