Join us for an author reading on Wednesday, September 18 as we welcome J. Ryan Stradal, who will be reading from his new novel, The Lager Queen of Minnesota.

The Lager Queen of Minnesota serves up a cast of lovable, quintessentially Midwestern characters eager to make their mark in a world that's often stacked against them. In this deeply affecting, humorous, emotional family saga, resolution can take generations, but when it finally comes, we're surprised, moved, and delighted.

You can pre-order The Lager Queen of Minnesota through our special order online form. Copies will be available in the shop on the release date, 7/23/19.

J. Ryan Stradal grew up in Minnesota and now lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. His first novel, Kitchens of the Great Midwest,  was  published by Viking / Pamela Dorman Books on July 28th, 2015, and reached the New York Times Hardcover Best Seller list at #19 on its third week of release.
