Who’s Aaron Brown? He’s a smart, insightful, entertaining, writer. (I don’t put it as well as the numerous articles written about the book but . . .) You can get a taste of his writing style at www.minnesotabrown.com. He also writes weekly guest columns for the Hibbing Tribune and is a regular contributor to KAXE.
What exactly is this book about anyway? As Aaron explains it, “This book is a mix of personal stories, observations, interviews and history all driving toward the central theme of a unique region and people as they were, are and might become.”
Even if you can’t make it to the opening tonight, why don’t you go ahead and buy his book. (Unless you’re a close family member, then I just ordered a copy for your Christmas present.) It’s a great way to support a local guy and, though I haven’t read the book, I’m sure it's great. Ours is already on order.
