Scout & Morgan Books is excited to welcome New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author William Kent Krueger as he shares his long-awaited companion novel to Ordinary Grace, This Tender Land.

North Folk Winery in Harris, Minnesota, will be Scout and Morgan’s partner and host for this event on Wednesday, Aug. 28 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Ordinary Grace has won multiple awards: the Edgar Award, Midwest Booksellers Choice Award, the Barry Award, plus so many more. This Tender Land is another unforgettable novel by this amazing author.

In a modern-day epic, soon-to-be-classic, This Tender Land is set in 1932 in a Minnesota summer. Four orphans are forced to set out by canoe toward the Mighty Mississippi for an adventure that will draw everyone in and change lives forever. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Krueger share first-hand the stories behind it and get your first-edition copy, personally autographed that night-six days before the official release date of Sept. 3.

Tickets are $10 and are available at Scout & Morgan Books and online at The ticket includes an evening with Krueger, wood-fired pizza and salad prepared by North Folk Winery and celebratory cake. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and Krueger will begin his presentation at 7 p.m. Arrive early and enjoy food, wine and music by Fendrick & Peck. Be advised you will be outside under a large tent for most of the evening. There are a variety of seating options available, but feel free to bring your favorite lawn chair if desired.

Note: The release date for This Tender Land is Sept. 3; however, Scout & Morgan Books is delighted to be the first stop on Krueger’s book tour and event attendees will be the first to get signed copies of the book that evening.
