Book Opening Tonight (10/16)

Hey, Northern MN folks! Do you have plans for this evening? If not and you'd like a nice evening out, here's a good opportunity for you. Our friend Aaron Brown’s new book, "Overburden: Modern Life on the Iron Range" is now available. The book opening is tonight, Thursday, Oct. 16 between 5-7 p.m. at Howard Street Booksellers in Hibbing. We really wish we could go show our support and congratulate Aaron on his accomplishment. But since we’re stuck in the frozen North, why don’t you do that for us?

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 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.
