The second passion in my life is reading and lately I've become enthused with local authors. Tonight was the launch party for William Kent Kruger's new book, Heaven's Keep. All of his books have been excellent, so am anxious to read this one. The party was held at the neatest book store, Once Upon A Crime, in Minneapolis. Last week, a book by the same name and dedicated to the store was launched, but I couldn't make the party. The book is short stories by many local authors and other well known authors. I have about 20 pages left of that one and am enjoying it.Because it was a party, there was cake.
