The Minnesota Historical Society preserves and makes available a wide range of materials chronicling Minnesota's history and culture. The goals of the Collections Department are to collect and preserve; provide access and interpretation; and engage in education and outreach. This blog is a tool to share these stories and let people know what is happening in the department.
"Alan and his Perfectly Pointy Impossibly Perpendicular Pinky"
Happy Black History Month!
Throughout February we will feature as Item of the Day books in our collections written by African Americans across many genres.
Today's pick is the children's book "Alan and his Perfectly Pointy Impossibly Perpendicular Pinky," written by Justice Alan Page and his daughter Kamie Page in 2013.
In addition to being a children's author, Justice Page formerly served on the Minnesota Supreme Court and played for the Vikings.
