Hawthorne visited by national authors

This July, the Hawthorne neighborhood was visited by two nationally acclaimed authors.

New York-based writer Ed Lin, author of the novels Waylaid and This Is A Bust, and Chicago-based Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu, author of The Shadow Speaker and Zahrah the Windseeker came to see our neighborhood.

The two were in Minneapolis to read from their latest books. The authors took a tour of the Hawthorne neighborhood including our EcoVillage project and other local landmarks.

Both found the Hawthorne neighborhood to be quite interesting and look forward to the next time they can come to visit more with the residents and see the best that Minnesota has to offer.

We look forward to future visits from other artists and authors to our community in the future.
