2021 Festival Friends will receive a virtual ticket to view two programs:


Award-winning author, Will Weaver presents: The Writer's Life: Just When You Think You've Done It All. Will Weaver recently set aside his own writing in order to bring to life an unpublished memoir by the late and beloved Minnesota author Jon Hassler (1933-2008). Discovered in Jon's effects, Days Like Smoke: A Memoir of Childhood needed a final edit and a publisher. Will tells the touching story of helping to resurrect this lovely and late addition to Hassler's body of work. 


Conversation is on the menu when some of the region's finest crime and mystery writers get together at the Deep Valley Book Festival. "Cooked to Death" authors Carl Brookins, Gary Bush, Rhonda Gilliland, Kiersten Hall, Christine Husom, Chris Norbury and Barbara Schlighting will discuss their food-related mysteries featured in the "Cooked to Death" anthologies. 


A link to view this program will be emailed to the ticket holder on October 9 and it can be viewed through October 25.
