The public is invited to join Anoka-Ramsey Community College English faculty member Kathryn Kysar, editor of "Riding Shotgun, Women Write About Their Mothers," and contributing writers, Shannon Olson (shown) and Sun Yung Shin (shown) at the Coon Rapids Campus College Hour, Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2 to 3 p.m., Rm. B203 for a free reading, Q-and-A session and book signing.

The public is invited to join Kysar and contributors Shannon Olson and Sun Yung Shin for a free reading, a question and answer session and a book signing.

Critics have called the 248-page collection a disarmingly honest and poignant collection of stories of startling candor and rich insight, revealing hard work and hardship, successes and failures, love and anger between mothers and daughters by a group of America’s celebrated literary women.

Shannon Olson is the author of the novels, "Welcome to My Planet: Where English Is Sometimes Spoken" and "Children of God Go Bowling." She has written for The Guardian (London), InStyle, Good Housekeeping, the Star Tribune, Minnesota Monthly and The Rake. She is an assistant professor of English at St. Cloud State University.

Sun Yung Shin is the author of the poetry collection "Skirt Full of Black" (Coffee House Press); co-editor of "Outsiders Within: Writing on Transracial Adoption" (South End Press); and author of "Cooper's Lesson" (Children’s Book Press), a bilingual (Korean/English) illustrated book for children. She is a 2007 Bush Artist Fellow for Literature and has received grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Jerome Foundation. Shin teaches at the Perpich Center for Arts Education.

Other contributors to the collection include Jonis Agee, Sandra Benitez, Barrie Jean Borich, Taiyon Coleman, Heid Erdrich, Diane Glancy, Jan Zita Grover, Denise Low, Alison McGhee, Sheila O'Connor, Carrie Pomeroy, Susan Power, Faith Sullivan, Ann Ursu, Ka Vang, Wang Ping and Morgan Grayce Willow.
