Pete Hautman, Mary Logue to Speak for Gustavus Spring Author Day

Posted on April 12th, 2005 by

Celebrated novelists Pete Hautman and Mary Logue will speak at the Gustavus Library Associates’ Spring Author Day at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, May 12 at the Edina Country Club (5100 Wooddale Avenue, Edina). The two have been together since meeting in 1989 at a fiction class taught by Logue, and share their lives in two homes: a Golden Valley rambler and a rural Stockholm, Wisconsin farmhouse. Combined, the couple has produced more than 20 books, winning numerous prizes.

Hautman’s novel Godless won the 2004 National Book Award in the Young Adult Novel category. His Sweetblood won the 2003 Minnesota Book Award. He has also published more than 100 non-fiction works for children under the name Peter Murray.

Logue’s Dark Coulee, one of her Claire Watkins mystery series, won a Minnesota Book Award in 2000. Logue, in addition to her numerous mysteries and thrillers, has also published nearly a dozen children’s non-fiction books and a memoir/biography of her grandmother.

Logue’s new poetry book Meticulous Attachment and Hautman’s new young adult novel Invisible are scheduled for release in April. Additionally, the pair is co-authoring a potential series of mystery novels for young adults. The first in the series, titled Snatched, will be published this fall.

Author Day includes brunch, speakers, and book signing. Contact the Gustavus Special Events staff at 507/933-7520 for more details.
