Sponsored by Dragonfly Books and Robey Memorial Library, Krueger will share his stories, talk about Desolation Mountain, and sign copies of his books on Thursday, September 13 at 7:00 pm at Robey Memorial Library.


Desolation Mountain (Atria 2018) is the 17th book in Krueger’s series featuring Cork O’Connor. Beginning with Iron Lake (Atria 1998), Krueger hooks audiences with his dynamic characters, intriguing plots, and vivid settings. Including the return of some beloved characters, Desolation Mountain is the perfect mystery for Krueger’s new and long-time fans.

Raised in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon, William Kent Krueger briefly attended Stanford University—before being kicked out for radical activities. After that, he logged timber, worked construction, tried his hand at free-lance journalism, and eventually ended up researching child development at the University of Minnesota. He currently makes his living as a full-time author. He makes his home in St. Paul, a city he dearly loves.
