- Nov 4 – Booksigning by Jill & Deane Johnson
Saturday • 12–2pm at the store
We are thrilled to welcome Jill and Deane Johnson back to Cherry Street Books with their newest book, Little Minnesota in WW II: the Stories Behind 140 Fallen Heroes From Minnesota’s Littlest Towns.
They had a huge hit with their first book (Little Minnesota: 100 Towns Around 100) and so many of you enjoyed chatting with them. As we approach Veteran’s Day, what a wonderful way to remember and honor these heroes from around Minnesota. From John Emery (who died 12/7/41 on board the USS Arizona), to Herman Thelander (who was lost in the Bermuda Triangle – a mystery to this day), this unique book allows you to experience the war through personal accounts of the men and their families. Photos from the war, scans of actual letters, journal excerpts, and family memories create a one-of-a-kind book that brings history to life and combines local history with WW II nostalgia. The Johnsons will offer brief introductory remarks about their book and how it came to be at Noon. Hope to see you here at the store on Saturday November 4th between noon and 2 PM!
- Nov 9 – Booksigning by author Cindy Senarighi
Thursday • 7pm
Rev. Cindy Senarighi, author of YogaDevotion, will be at Cherry Street Books at 7 PM on Thursday November 9th to share ideas and talk with us about her book. Cindy has developed a unique program and is eager to share it and answer your questions. All are welcome!
- Dec 2 – Booksigning by author Kiersten Hall
Saturday • noon–2pm
Kiersten Hall will be here to regale us with amusing stories and share her books, I Do and Corner Confessions. Her stories in the first book come from years of work as a wedding photographer and all the funny and outrageous things that can happen at weddings and the accompanying festivities. The other book is full of amazing stories people have told her or others; it is surprising how much people really want to “confess” their stories to a stranger. Kiersten appeared on KXRA’s Open Line program in June when she happened to be in town; please ask her about the on-air confession that came in from a caller while she was in the studio. It is truly an amazing one!! She will be very entertaining and you may know just the right person (maybe it’s you) who would enjoy the humor in her books.
- Dec 9 – Booksigning by author Candace Simar
Saturday • noon–2pm

A charming lady and fine writer, Candace no doubt has produced another lovely book; we invite you to stop in a take a look at it and then jot December 9th on your calendar so you can come in to meet her.
