Dominique Snedeker, author of Motherhood: Crucible of Love, returns to Main Street Books to sign and discuss her newest book of poems. Cold: Untamed Beauty is a love letter to the powerful, beautiful, and often dangerous North Dakota winter.

The evening will include a free-ranging discussion in which everyone is invited to participate with their ideas and stories about the many manifestations of creativity.

Join us in welcoming Taylor Brorby as he signs and discusses his memoir Boys and Oil: Growing Up Gay in a Fractured Land.
"Brorby has written not only a truly great memoir, but also a frighteningly relevant one that speaks to the many battles we still have left to fight." --Jung Yun, New York Times Book Review
From a young, gay environmentalist, a searing coming-of-age memoir set against the arid landscape of rural North Dakota, where homosexuality "seems akin to a ticking bomb."
