Minnesota Public Radio and the Star Tribune are proud to announce the 21st season of Talking Volumes. Talking Volumes is hosted by award-winning journalist Kerri Miller. In response to COVID-19 and the state restriction on large gatherings, this season we are going virtual! All events will be held via Webinar and will include Kerri's interviews with the authors and a live interactive panel discussion moderated by the Star Tribune.

Featuring stunning new talent and familiar vibrant voices, writing in genres spanning from fiction to nature writing, and enjoyable from the comfort of your own couch, the 21st season of Talking Volumes is one you won't want to miss.

As this is a very different Talking Volumes season, we have a different way to get your tickets. We're happy to offer tickets on a Pay-What-You-Can model, with price points at $20, $10, $5 and Free. Tickets are on sale starting Tuesday, September 1st at noon CDT.


Sarah Broom "The Yellow House"

Winner of the 2019 National Book Award in Nonfiction Named one of the 10 Best Books of the Year by the New York Times, The Yellow House is a brilliant, haunting and unforgettable memoir from a stunning new talent about the inexorable pull of home and family, set in a shotgun house in New Orleans East. A book of great ambition, Sarah M. Broom's The Yellow House tells a hundred years of her family and their relationship to home in a neglected area of one of America's most mythologized cities. This is the story of a mother's struggle against a house's entropy, and that of a prodigal daughter who left home only to reckon with the pull that home exerts, even after the Yellow House was wiped off the map after Hurricane Katrina. It is a transformative, deeply moving story from an unparalleled new voice of startling clarity, authority, and power.
