Listen to the Minnesota Public Radio spot
The finalists for the Minnesota Book Awards were announced earlier this month and Native author Chris Stark’s book “Carnival Lights” is a finalist. Chris Stark is Anishinaabe and Cherokee. The book is a blend of fact and fiction driving deep into the history of Minnesota. Host Cathy Wurzer invited Allison Waukau, a Native woman and a librarian in Minneapolis, on to the show to talk with Chris Stark.
