Helget's book, "The Summer of Ordinary Ways: A Memoir," paints a vivid picture of her family's life in rural southeastern Minnesota through a series of short memoir essays that combine to create memorable images of the challenges and crises in an extended farming family. An author of both nonfiction and fiction, Helget's writing awards include the Minnesota State University - Mankato Robert Wright Award, the 2004 Loft Speakeasy Prize for Prose and Minnesota Monthly magazine Tamarack Award.

More on the Visiting Author Series
The visiting author series was started in 1999 by the ARCC English faculty, which has consistently hosted two authors annually since Fall 2002.


Award-winning Minnesota writer Nicole Helget Award-winning Minnesota author, Nicole Helget, will visit Anoka-Ramsey Community College (ARCC) Coon Rapids Campus Feb. 7 to read from and sign copies of her recently released memoir, "The Summer of Ordinary Ways: A Memoir."


"We in the English Department recognize the importance of a common book experience on campus," says Scott Stankey, ARCC English faculty. "It's important that our students have the experience of reading a book and then meeting the person who wrote that book to facilitate their growth, awareness and understanding of language and literature."

Due to the popularity of the authors visiting ARCC, a student-only reading is held an hour before the public reading to allow for an education-enhancing experience.

The public is also invited to plan ahead for a visit by author Ed-Bok Lee. Lee will be reading from his first book, " "Real Karaoke People: Poems and Prose," April 25, 11 a.m., Coon Rapids Campus Room B-235.

For more information about Helget, Lee or the visiting author series, visit www.anokaramsey.edu or contact Scott Stankey at 763-433-1396.
