are in for a riveting hour online with New York
Times bestselling author William Kent Krueger! Join us as he discusses
his newest book in the Cork O’Connor series Fox
Creek and his numerous other works!
Fox Creek follows Cork O’Connor in a race
against time to save his wife, a mysterious stranger, and an Ojibwe healer from
bloodthirsty mercenaries. The ancient Ojibwe healer Henry Meloux has had a
vision of his death. As he walks the Northwoods in solitude, he tries to
prepare himself peacefully for the end of his long life. But peace is destined
to elude him as hunters fill the woods seeking a woman named Dolores Morriseau,
a stranger who had come to the healer for shelter and the gift of his wisdom.
Meloux guides this stranger and his great niece, Cork O’Connor’s wife, to
safety deep into the Boundary Waters, his home for more than a century.
Meanwhile, in Aurora, Cork works feverishly to identify the hunters and the
reason for their relentless pursuit, but he has little to go on. He knows only
too well that with each passing hour time is running out.
This event is made possible by the
voters of Minnesota through a grant provided by the Traverse des Sioux Library
Cooperative, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural
