In its 20th season, the Anoka-Ramsey Community College’s Two Rivers Reading Series welcomes author An Na for a reading and interview on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, noon to 12:50 pm and 2 to 2:50 pm at the college’s Coon Rapids Campus Performing Arts Center Theatre. The event is free and open to the public.

Na brings her novel “A Step from Heaven” to the series, which is a gripping coming-of-age story that chronicles the compelling story of a young Korean girl's experiences and challenges as she and her family emigrate to the United States. “A Step from Heaven” won the Michael L. Printz Award and was an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults, a National Book Award finalist, an Ira Young Adults’ Choice Award, a New York Times Book Review Notable Book and more.

Na is the author of four novels, including “The Place Between Breaths,” “The Fold,” “Wait for Me” and “A Step from Heaven.” She teaches at Vermont College of Fine Arts in the Writing for Children and Young Adults Master of Fine Arts program. For more information about Na visit: AnWriting.com

This year, the Two Rivers Reading Series celebrates 20 years of bringing acclaimed, award-winning authors, poets and playwrights to Anoka-Ramsey each semester. The series events strive to make learning more comprehensive by combining classwork with real-world experiences, as students study the authors’ work in their English courses.

The event, supported by the college’s English Department, is free and open to the public. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask An Na questions and have their books signed at the event.
