Anoka-Ramsey Community College’s annual Cambridge Campus Minnesota Writer Program is proud to announce Kevin Kling as this year’s featured artist.

Kling’s work, well known for being both funny and poignant, has been adapted and performed around the world.

He will highlight a free, public reading at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 13. After reading from his work, Kling will answer audience questions.

Afterward, refreshments will be served, and Kling will sign books and CD’s, available for purchase at the Cambridge Campus bookstore now and the night of the event.

Kling is a well-known Minnesota playwright and storyteller. His commentaries are available on National Public Radio’s, “All Things Considered.” His book, “The Dog Says How,” was voted Best Book by a Local Artist in the City Pages: Best of 2008, and he was recently featured in the Star Tribune.

The Minnesota Writer Program is sponsored the English Division on the Cambridge Campus and the Cambridge Campus Library.

“Usually, you have to make a trip to the Twin Cities to see the big names in Minnesota literature,” says English faculty member, Bill Breen. “But for over 20 years, the Minnesota Writer Program at the college’s Cambridge Campus has been hosting such noteworthy writers as Robert Bly, Jon Hassler, Kate DiCamillo and Garrison Keillor in East Central Minnesota, always free of charge, as our contribution to the cultural enrichment of our community.”
