Writers Sherman Wick and Holly Day think Minneapolis and St. Paul are best explored on foot. Walking Twin Cities—a newly released collection of 34 urban hikes—takes you through the downtowns, neighborhoods, lakes, dive bars, and cultural attractions of both cities. Whether you’re drawn to natural, architectural, or historical landscapes—such as St. Paul’s gangster hideouts—there’s a walk in this book to satisfy anyone’s wanderlust. Meet the authors and pick up your signed copy at the Walker Shop.
Wick’s previous books include Insider’s Guide to the Twin Cities, with his wife and coauthor Day. His writing has appeared in such publications as the St. Paul Almanac, Film Festival Today, and Cosmic Debris. Day teaches writing classes for kids and adults at the Loft in Minneapolis. Her books include Music Composition for Dummies and Music Theory for Dummies. She is a recent recipient of the Sam Ragan Poetry Prize from Barton College.
