Author William Kent Krueger will appear at Delaware Co. library event

Growing up in a variety of states including Wyoming, Oklahoma, Texas and Ohio (where he spent his fourth-grade year in Worthington), William Kent Krueger always knew he would become a writer.

But what this novelist with “not one drop of Native American blood” in him didn’t know was that he would produce a celebrated mystery series set in and around tribal lands in Minnesota and that his protagonist would be part Ojibwe.

“Lightning Strikes” is the 18th and newest book in Krueger’s Cork O’Connor series — a prequel that explores the adolescent years of the half-Irish, half-Native American former Tamarack County sheriff turned private investigator. Krueger (he goes by Kent) will talk about the book in an April 27 event presented by the Delaware County District Library.
