Minnesota author to visit Scout & Morgan Books

Beryl Singleton Bissell, author of “A View of the Lake,” will hold a book signing at Scout & Morgan Books in Cambridge on Saturday, Oct. 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Scout & Morgan Books welcomes Minnesota author Beryl Singleton Bissell on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. to share her new book, “A View of the Lake.”

Beryl Singleton Bissell, nationally renowned author of “The Scent of God,” shares her experience of life on Minnesota’s Lake Superior North Shore in this collection of essays that follows her journey to find her place in a small northern town.

These tales of the singular joys and challenges of moving from a city to a rural area will resonate with anyone who dreams of downsizing, picking up and moving to a life alongside a lake and its denizens. Each chapter captures the nature of the North Shore and the ways in which everything and everyone is shaped by the Big Lake.

Fans of her first book will feel right at home with the warm, insightful prose that has made Bissell so successful. For residents or frequent visitors, and hopeful travelers who have yet to experience its charms, “A View of the Lake” is a direct route to the North Shore.

Beryl will read from and sign copies of her book. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 763-689-2474. Scout & Morgan Books is located at 114 Buchanan St. North, Cambridge.
