Minnesota State Fair Time


It’s state fair time in Minnesota and few are as beloved as the Minnesota State Fair and its annual “Twelve Days of Fun” leading up to Labor Day. You may have wondered what all the fuss is about, but this is where mini donuts and batter-fried cheese curds were invented! Now all the fun of being at a fair can be enjoyed by reading “Minnesota State Fair: an illustrated history” by Kathryn Koutsky. We also have Susan Miller’s “State Fair” which is filled with stunning images of this great Minnesota get-together. If you can’t make it to the top of the Ferris wheel at a state fair, we have books on Ferris wheels, country life on the farm, and recipe books for cream puffs, mini donuts and batter-fried cheese curds.
