Author Talk With West St. Paul’s Jackie Polzin

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!”

“A chicken’s life is full of magic. Lo and behold.”

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.

“A moving meditation on loss, solitude, and the hope that can rise from both.”
