In Mid-June I went down to Red Wing to see a Meg Hutchinson concert. Meg’s my favorite songwriter and has a wonderful poetry book out, so I took down a copy of The Reader: War for the Oaks fresh off the press for her with the intention of asking her to do a reader at some point. Then I got to the venue and it was obvious that would be overcomplicating things.
The concert hall at The Anderson Center in Red Wing is a remodeled barn, and the best use of knotty pine I’ve ever seen. It’s a gorgeous space, and Meg was kind enough to take a moment after her show to model for me with her book. I think this is going to be one of my favorites from the series.
