Frederick Blanch
Frederick Blanch

Frederick  Blanch grew up during the Great Depression in a small Minnesota farming community and has been characterized as “Minnesota’s Mark Twain of non-fiction.”

His latest book, “Last Words: Frederick’s Bionary,” is a “witty, charming, sad, and hilarious” account of his trials and travails. A bionary is a combining of a biography and a dictionary. The book was nominated for a 2011 Minnesota Book Award.

The book follows a dictionary format with boldfaced words followed by definitions. It is unique and insightful. Blanch has been traveling throughout Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin entertaining audiences.

Join the Cambridge Public Library at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 1. Blanch will read from his book and sign and sell books following his presentation. The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Cambridge Library. Call 763-689-7390 x15 for more information.
