Mnnesota 13 Best Selling Book

I just found out that Elaine Davis's Minnesota 13 book has been the best selling local book of the year at the Stearns County Museum. Pretty good especially since it didn't come out until the end of July. Haven't got your copy yet? Need a unique Christmas gift ? Stop in at Bev's Corner Pizza and pick up a copy or two and browse through all the antiques she has there.

Minnesota 13 Class

We seem to be stuck on the minnesota 13 theme right now, like
here, here here and here but that is o.k. as it is very interesting. I just found out that Elaine Davis is going to be teaching a community Education class at the Holdingford High School Commons on Monday December 10 th ,7:00-8:30 p.m. the Fee is $5 the registration deadline is December 3d. Here is the other information I received from the Community Ed Dept.
'Stearns County’s Wet Wild Prohibition Days'
Dr. Elaine Davis, Author
Elaine is looking forward to coming to Holdingford to share her new book, Minnesota 13, a historical overview of the years from 1920-1933, when moonshine production dominated Stearns County as the 18th Amendment was in effect. She will present stories from, and sign copies of, Minnesota 13. Elaine will also share with you what she has learned about self publishing. This will be a great opportunity for you to meet a local author and learn from her research and experiences.
I believe it will be a enjoyable evening, as she has many stories that are not in the book.
