Readers of all ages will have an opportunity to meet local authors and illustrators throughout the months of September, October, and November beginning Saturday, September 10. The Blue Earth County Library System (BECLS) will be hosting four authors and illustrators on select Saturdays at 10:30 AM:  

  • Katie Roiger (author of ONLY THE BRAVE for middle-grade readers) will join us on September 10,
  • David LaRochelle (author of SEE THE CAT: THREE STORIES ABOUT A DOG [a 2021 Theodore Suess Geisel Award winner]) is scheduled for October 1,
  • Jennifer Wilson (author of SOMEDAY WE’LL FIND IT for young adult readers) will be here on October 22, and
  • Chris Monroe (author of the MONKEY WITH A TOOLBELT series, which was recently adapted for a Netflix show) will present and host a draw-along on November 5.


This program is supported by a grant from the State of Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the people of Minnesota for Library Legacy activities. It is one of several events for both adults and children happening at the Blue Earth County Library this fall. All BECLS events are free and open to the public, and more information can be found by calling 507-304-4001, visiting, signing up with an email address at, or picking up a newsletter from any BECLS location.
