John Kerr signed copies of Mohamed’s Dream at Next Chapter Booksellers in St. Paul on Jan. 14. The nonfiction title shares the story of Mohamed Fofana, one of the young boys killed in a landslide at St. Paul’s Lilydale Park on May 22, 2012. The St. Louis Park boy, and another child, were on a school field trip hunting for fossils when the accident happened.
Author Jon Kerr is a longtime journalist and writer who also happened to be a neighborhood and environmental advocate for Lilydale Park when the landslide occurred. The book not only sheds new light on what went wrong, it shares how Mohammed’s family is working to keep their son’s memory alive.
A free showing of the documentary, “The Wall: The Stories of the 2018 Minneapolis Homeless Camp,” took place on Jan. 9 in memory of the death of one of the men featured in the film. The showing was at the Grand Makwa Cinema in Onamia, Minn., and the Mille Lacs Messenger covered the event.
Earl Monchamp Junior was a member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, and one of four people of native American descent featured in the film to die as a result of addiction since the film's release in Summer 2019.
The documentary by independent film director and producer Brandon Ferdig shares the stories of several of the people who lived in the Hiawatha homeless camp that sprang up last winter in Minneapolis.
A great way to go about acquiring media placements for your book is to write an article or column for the publication you are targeting, and there's a magazine in Minnesota that is very receptive to author-written columns.

Congratulations to Maureen Aitken, author, The Patron Saint of Lost Girls. Her short story collection has mde the list of Kirkus Reviews' Best Indie Books of 2019, and it is featured in the Dec. 15 issue of the Kirkus Reviews magazine.
The Patron Saint of Lost Girls has also captured the attention of employees at The Galleria Barnes and Noble in Edina, Minn. In Nov. 2019, Aitken was invited to lead a character development workshop for writers who frequent the store, and the book has been selected as the inaugural title for the store’s new book club. The title will be featured at the store throughout the month of Jan. 2020.
“I’m thrilled that The Patron Saint of Lost Girls is the inaugural choice for Beyond the Words Book Club with Tiffanné and Sadie. The passion these women share for books is so infectious; and their timing couldn’t be better. As the holidays end and we move deeper into winter, building a community of readers to gather and discuss literature is a wonderful cure for cabin fever and bitter temperatures,” said Aitken.
Store patrons are invited to pick up their copy of The Patron Saint of Lost Girls at the store, read the book, then return the afternoon of Sun., Jan. 26 between 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. for a discussion and question and answer session with author Maureen Aitken. The Galleria Barnes and Noble is located at 3230 Galleria, Edina, MN 55435.
