Join us for an evening with West St. Paul author Jackie Polzin as she discusses her novel, Brood, which explores grief and miscarriage through a brood of backyard chickens. The event is presented in partnership with Dakota County Library and Friends of the Wentworth Library.
When: Thursday, December 1 at 6:30 p.m.
Where: Wentworth Library (199 Wentworth Ave. E., West St. Paul) in the large meeting room.
The book: Polzin’s Brood is both funny and sad, but also deeply poignant. The Star Tribune called it “wry and rare and old-fashioned in a good way… and so funny!”
- Brood came out in the midst of the pandemic and is available at the library, local bookstores, and online.
- Visit JackiePolzin.com for more on the author.
- Read our 2021 interview with Polzin.

The event: We’ll talk with Polzin about the book, raising chickens, struggling with grief, and living in West St. Paul. She’ll also read from the novel and we’ll take questions from the audience.
- Part of a series of events for our year-end member drive, the Jackie Polzin author event is open to the public (but geared for adults).
- Refreshments will be served.
