Join us at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 8, at Wildwood Library as we welcome author Larry Millett as part of our 2018 Winter Reads program. He will discuss both his mystery novels and his non-fiction historical works. Everyone is welcome! No registration required.
Larry Millett has combined his interest in journalism, architectural history, and mystery fiction to create an unusual writing career. A native of Minneapolis, he attended school there and then went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree in English from St. John’s University and a master’s degree from the University of Chicago.
He began working as a general assignment reporter for the St. Paul Pioneer Press in 1972 and became the newspaper’s first architecture critic after a year of study on a fellowship to the University of Michigan.
Larry’s first book, The Curve of the Arch, appeared in 1985. Since then, he’s written ten other works of nonfiction, including Lost Twin Cities, which has been in continuous print for more than twenty years. His latest book, about the lost Metropolitan Building in Minneapolis, will be published in 2019.
