 Sue Leaf will host a virtual event with Next Chapter Booksellers on Monday, July 6 at 7:00 p.m. for a reading and discussion of her new book, Minnesota's Geologist: The Life of Newton Horace Winchell. Please register here to receive the Zoom meeting information.

Tracing Newton Horace Winchell’s path to becoming a leading light of an emerging scientific field, Minnesota’s Geologist recreates the early days of scientific inquiry in Minnesota, when one man’s passion for learning could unlock secrets of the state’s distant past and present landscape. This first telling of Winchell’s life story is set against a backdrop of Minnesota’s geological complexity and splendor.

"Minnesota’s Geologist is an engaging biography of a pioneering scientist and a vivid tour through Minnesota’s landscape. Sue Leaf weaves the geology and natural history of the state seamlessly through the narrative of Winchell’s life and boundless curiosity. The reader travels with Leaf, following Winchell’s steps through Minnesota and beyond." —Julie Bartley, Gustavus Adolphus College

"A fascinating and delightful story of Newton Horace Winchell's personal and professional life, from a sixteen-year-old schoolteacher to the director of the Minnesota Geological Survey. Follow him throughout the state as he studies the varied geology of Minnesota. Sue Leaf conducted thorough research, and this book will be appreciated by everyone, not only geologists!" —Richard W. Ojakangas, professor emeritus, University of Minnesota Duluth
