Paperbacks and Pieces has partnered with Libro.fm for audiobook purchases via this link libro.fm/paperbacksandpieces. This is our new and preferred subscription audio book service.
By choosing Libro.fm over other audiobook services, you support a local bookstore of your choice—and invest in your local community. We offer over 100,000 audiobooks via our premium platform (which we built with love from scratch) and give you bookseller recommendations for great audiobooks.
There is a book cart on the front entrance landing at the bookstore offering FREE books for those who are stopping by or needing extra books. This table will be refreshed daily and contain a variety of genres. Please be kind and courteous.
All future events have been postponed at this time.

Author Sheila O'Connor
Evidence of V
Wednesday, March 25, 2020
12:00 pm to 2:00 pm
VENUE: Winona County Historical Society, 160 Johnson Street, Winona, MN
In an ambitious blend of fact and fiction, including family secrets, documents from the era, and a thin, fragmentary case file unsealed by the court, novelist Sheila O'Connor tells the riveting story of V, a talented fifteen-year-old singer in 1930s Minneapolis who aspires to be a star. Drawing on the little-known American practice of incarcerating adolescent girls for "immorality" in the first half of the twentieth century, O'Connor follows young V from her early work as a nightclub entertainer to her subsequent six-year state school sentence for an unplanned pregnancy.

Author William Kent Krueger
Release party for his newest book: This Tender Land
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Raised in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon, William Kent Krueger briefly attended Stanford University—before being kicked out for radical activities. After that, he logged timber, worked construction, tried his hand at freelance journalism, and eventually ended up researching child development at the University of Minnesota.
He currently makes his living as a full-time author. He’s been married for over 40 years to a marvelous woman who is a retired attorney. He makes his home in St. Paul, a city he dearly loves.
Krueger writes a mystery series set in the north woods of Minnesota.
His work has received a number of awards, including the Minnesota Book Award, the Loft-McKnight Fiction Award, the Anthony Award, the Barry Award, the Dilys Award, and the Friends of American Writers Prize. His last nine novels were all New York Times bestsellers.
Ordinary Grace, his stand-alone novel published in 2013, received the Edgar Award, given by the Mystery Writers of America in recognition for the best novel published in that year.
The companion novel, This Tender Land, is scheduled for paperback publication on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.
