Author and Hibbing native Pat McGauley's work as an historian at the Discovery Center years ago led to (so far) nine books about the fictional Moran family - and there's another book on the way.
"I got to know the family so well, I had to keep going with them," says McGauley.
Pat McGauley's "The Last Moran" was nominated for the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award (NEMBA) in Fiction and is published by PJM Publishing of Hibbing. All this summer, we'll be bringing you books about the Northland, from the Northland by NEMBA award-winners and nominees.
"I don't know from one day to the next what the characters are going to do, but I do know they'll live their lives better than I can make them live their lives."
