Author and naturalist Larry Weber wraps up out June weather (a little bit warmer and drier than usual) and trots out some plain brown butterflies with exotic and lovely names: Little Wood-Satyr, Ringlet and Northern Pearly-eye.

St.Louis County

Families holding ceremonies in the bitter cold outside UMD late last winter were making headlines after car accidents just days apart took the lives of two Native people - and controversy erupted between the medical examiner's insistence on autopsies and the victim's families, who protested autopsies were in violation of their religious beliefs.

This Grand Marais singer/songwriter and guitarist joins us in the studio on Friday, June 26 at 2pm. He performs the next day at the Park Point Art Fair from 11am to 2pm.

An opera singer?  Doing musical theater?  Sarah says it's not snobbery that makes many sopranos and tenors eschew musicals - it's the grueling schedule and a completely different way of singing.

Women's Words on June 28, 2015 features Holly Harden reading her essay "Fourth of July."

Former Two Harbors resident Dennis Herschbach already had three novels in his Two Harbors mystery series under his belt when he started writing "A River Through Two Harbors."  Then he read an article by Christine Stark in the StarTribune and his book took a turn into the only-too-real world of Native women being sex trafficked in the Northland.  When truth is more horrifying than fiction: Dennis Herschbach is our guest this morning on MN Reads.

Potter Sharon Moen was planning on being the next Rachel Carlson when she was pursuing her undergraduate degree in ornithology.  Then she took that one credit art class .....
