Author at the MPL: 10/24/2016

THIS Saturday, October 29th at 2:00pm, just in time for the election and all the discussion that surrounds it, author Marlene Norris is bringing her fictionalized take on real-life politics, Something in Common, to the Minot Public Library.

Something in Common uses a fictional world to tell how when problems of disconnect arise between different factions, solutions can be found to overcome that divide to work towards common goals and interests and create more informative political discourse.
