On the day I contacted J.C. Hallman to ask if he’d like to answer the 6 questions we always ask, he was on his way to Chicago to read as part of the Bookslut Reading Series. He was going to be reading with Aleksander Hemon, Marc Phillips, and Jean Thompson.
Minnesota Reads is a book review blog written by, well, Minnesota readers. It all started back in 2008 because there was no comprehensive Twin Cities Literary Events Calendar. We fixed that. Since nobody wanted to look at a calendar all the time, we added book reviews. If you like to talk about books, you can review with us too! Contact us to learn more.
