The Loft’s Wordplay 2019

May 10, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - May 12, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

The Loft’s Wordplay, presented by St. Catherine University and the Star Tribune, is coming this May featuring Stephen King, Mitch Albom, Amy Tan, Dave Barry, Bill McKibben, Tommy Orange, Jared Diamond, and many more!

Minnesota has one of the most celebrated literary communities in the country. We are rich with presses, locally owned bookstores, author events, writing classes, and great writers. We are perennially ranked one of the most literate communities in the country. A community like ours deserves a celebration like Wordplay.
