■ Author Bukoski, next Speaking of Books presenter

BAXTER — Anthony Bukoski will be the next presenter in the Speaking of Books series of programs Aug. 15 at Prairie Bay Grill and Catering, Baxter.
The free event starts at 4:30 p.m. and concludes at 6 p.m.
Bukoski, of Superior, Wis., is a Polish-American fiction writer, essayist and short-story author. He has written five short-story collections: “North of the
Port,” “Time Between Trains” (a Booklist Editors’ Choice), “Polonaise,” “Children of Strangers” and “Twelve Below Zero.”
The New York Times review of “Children of Strangers” said: “Mr. Bukoski is a sure-handed, lyrical writer with a good ear for regional and ethnic
cadences.”
Bukoski’s stories have been aired on Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Chapter a Day” program and on National Public Radio’s “Selected Shorts: A Celebration
of the Short Story.” He has received awards from the Christopher Isherwood Foundation, the Wisconsin Library Association, the Council for Wisconsin
Writers and other organizations.
Booklist, in a starred review, praised one of Bukoski’s short stories as “some of the most beautifully written since Sherwood Anderson’s in “Winesburg,
Ohio.’”
Publishers Weekly, reviewing “Time Between Trains,” wrote: “These atmospheric tales are a moving testament to a wintry region and its hardy
inhabitants.”
This is the second year for the literary venue featuring regional authors, publishers, book photographer, literary publicists and illustrators. Joe Plut,
author and a retired Central Lakes College English and humanities instructor, created and hosts the series.
Speaking of Books is a free series offered on the third Thursday of each month. The final program of 2013 will be Sept. 19 presented by Krista Rolfzen
Soukup, Brainerd literary publicist and owner of Blue Cottage Agency.
Each program in the series includes complimentary appetizers and time for the presenter to answer questions and sign books.
