This spring at Northern State University, “A Writer Reads” will feature readings by three visiting writers, as well as a capstone reading by students taking fiction writing. On Tuesday, March 13, Brenda Donelan will give a public reading of her work in the Williams Library Round Room from 4 to 4:45 p.m. Donelan is a former NSU professor of criminology and author of a cozy mystery series featuring a criminology professor. Her books will be available for sale at her reading, and she will be happy to sign them. “A Writer Reads” events are sponsored by funding from the South Dakota Humanities Council.
