Family Weekend at the Bookstores

family weekend

We are having two CSB Alumnae authors signing their books on Family Weekend!  Book signings will be at the SJU Bookstore, 10:30-12:00. The two authors are:

         Mary Seifert, is a graduate of the College of Saint Benedict ’77.  She taught math for many years and has always had a love of books and reading.  But it wasn't until rather recently, when the last of her children had moved away, that Seifert was able to devote her time to writing.  She currently has 3 books published and is working on more. The books are all part of the Katie & Maverick Cozy Mysteries series.  The first,  “Maverick, Movies & Murder,” is a murder mystery that stars new-in-town teacher Katie Wilk and her canine companion, a black Lab named Maverick, the books take place in Columbia, Minnesota. Katie moved to Columbia to start her life again after a tragedy, but there's plenty of intrigue and investigation that catches her attention in her new home.  Books 2 and 3 are "Rescues, Rogues & Renegade," and "Tinsel, Trials & Traitors."

         Carrie Torgersen, is a graduate of the College of St. Benedict ’95 and the University of Minnesota Medical School. Her book, Magnus the Naughty Dog, is more than a children's book. It's an important story about family, forgiveness, love and the power of pets to entertain and unite us. Her lifelong passion for reading and literature, as well as for animals, was the inspiration for this book. Carrie lives in River Falls, Wisconsin, with her family (and one very rascally dog) and works as a full-time physician.
