Our very special guest speaker will be the celebrated Saint Paul Pioneer Press Book Editor, Mary Ann Grossmann!
Bio: Mary Ann joined the Dispatch-Pioneer Press in 1961 when there were two papers. She has been a fashion writer, a women’s columnist and the women’s department editor who brought “society” pages into the 20th century. She was named book editor in 1983, just when the local literary community exploded. She has won the Minnesota Book Awards Kay Sexton Award, a Page One Award and YWCA Leader Lunch Award. She retired in 2001 and works part time. A graduate of Macalester College, she lives on St. Paul’s West Side in a money-sucking Victorian house with assorted old animals.
