My North | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine | March 2017
Nearly a decade ago Marlon James moved from Jamaica to Minnesota for a teaching appointment at Macalester College. Today, the 2015 Man Booker Prize-winning author of “A Brief History of Seven Killings” is a bonafide literary superstar but chooses to stay in Minneapolis because the city inspired the sense of openness and potential that allowed him to write his breakout novel in the first place. This is one of 52 stories to Minnesota from notable Minnesotans. Hear from tastemakers and stylemakers. Artists and athletes. Authors and entertainers. These are their odes to the state they love.
