Moving in time from the U.S. Dakota war of 1862 to the Lino Lakes medium security prison of today, these stories reveal the fault lines in the Minnesota that we think we know, and how the land of 10,000 lakes can uplift, overwhelm, and bewilder the many peoples who have made it their home.

Brian Malloy is a 2015 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is funded, in part, by the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008. This event is cosponsored by the Loft Literary Center, celebrating 40 years of inspiring writers and readers.
