In recent weeks, best-selling suspense writer Brian Freeman has stopped in La Crescent and Stewartville to talk with readers about his latest book, "A Cold Nowhere."The suspense thriller was a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award this year.
At 7 p.m. Oct. 14, Freeman will stop at the Austin Library for a book reading and Q-and-A about the future adventures of Jonathan Stride, Freeman's protagonist.
Freeman has published 10 novels and his books have been sold and translated in 17 countries. While he tours all over, he always holds events throughout Minnesota.
"I've spent a lot of time in some great small towns through the years," said Freeman, who lives in St. Paul. "For me, that's just a big part of the fun of being a writer. I love the opportunity to chat with the readers and librarians and the booksellers. Writing is such an intense, solitary and introspective kind of profession for me, it's really wonderful to have these kinds of opportunities to go out and talk to people face-to-face."
