The Rosemount Area Arts Council will have its first Meet the Author program for 2022 on Thursday, Jan. 20, at 6 p.m. at the Robert Trail Library, 14375 S. Robert Trail, Rosemount.

January’s featured author will be M. R. Tain, author of “This isn’t Normal.”

In the book, Karla Hunsaker lives a normal life with her mother and little brother, until the fall of her junior year of high school when the last of her great-grandparents dies.

She wakes up the morning after the family meeting in their guest room only to find them both alive, along with their daughter, Cheryl, the grandmother Karla never knew.

Karla assumes she is dreaming. Cheryl is Karla’s age, and they share a strong family resemblance, but she never met her grandmother before this strange event, and her grandfather is an offish, grumpy old man.

Tain opens this window in time in “This Isn’t Normal,” giving a millennial teen a look at her 1965 counterpart, as well as some fun and games and a legacy that fate had denied her.

This is a free event. Masks are required.

The Rosemount Area Arts Council, in partnership with the Dakota County Library, Robert Trail Branch has been featuring a different author every month for the past 11 years.
