ATA070119vromans_img04Beer Tasting & Book Signing with J. Ryan Stradal at Pages Bookstore/Off-site Location

Please join us for a beer tasting and book signing as author J. Ryan Stradal discusses his new novel, The Lager Queen of Minnesota.

Two sisters. One farm. A family is split when their father leaves their shared inheritance entirely to Helen, his younger daughter. Despite baking award-winning pies at the local nursing home, her older sister, Edith, struggles to make a living, and wonders what her life would be like if she had a share of that money. Helen buys a successful brewery with the proceeds, and is rigid as a steel keg, while Edith has a heart as big as the state. In this deeply affecting family saga, resolution can take decades, but it is surprising and moving when it comes.
