Authors will include Dean Hovey, author of the Pine County Mystery series; Autumn Aubut, author of "Sasquatch and the Secret Forest" and Cloquet poet Greg Opstad will have his collection "Lake Country." Former state senator Florian Chmielewski will offer his memoir "0 to 90" (as told to Cloquet’s Brady Slater and Florian’s daughter Patty).
The Esko Historical Society will have copies of "Esko's Corner: An Illustrated History of Esko and Thomson Township" for sale, and the Moose Lake Area Historical Society will have copies of "Firebeast: The Fires of 1918" by Carol Illikainen for sale.
