Book & Ballad Program at State Theatre

7:30 pm, Friday, March 23- Free Admission

Elisa Korenne, musician and author of the book Hundred Miles to Nowhere: An Unlikely Love Story, will be performing at the State Theatre on Friday, March 23.  She will play some of her original songs and speak about her book.

Hundred Miles to Nowhere: An Unlikely Love Story (North Star Press, June 2017) explores what happens when a singer-songwriter moves from New York City to rural Minnesota and discovers somewhere, and someone, in the middle of nowhere.

This project was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.


Zumbrota Reads

Our 2018 Zumbrota Reads book selection is Hundred Miles to Nowhere by Elisa Korenne. Korenne’s memoir is the story of what happens when a singer-songwriter moves from New York City to rural Minnesota for love, and finds there’s more to life than music.

Copies of the book are available for checkout at the library. The author will be performing a Book & Ballad program at the State Theatre at 7:30pm on March 23.

Gao Hong to visit library on March 10

Gao Hong, renowned Chinese Pipa player, will be visiting the library at 10am on Saturday, March 10.  She will demonstrate the various ways a pipa can be played and perform a few musical pieces. Children will get a chance to try playing the instrument themselves.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
