“THE WINTER BEES”
The Winter Bees, published by Minneopa Valley Press, is a collection of 10 interconnected, character-driven short stories that circle around a cast of rural southern-Minnesota residents who bend but do not break, and whose duties often mean personal restraint and heartbreak.
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR “THE WINTER BEES”
“… Kalz captures the tenacity, devotion to labor, and will to endure associated with the rural Midwest.”
“These rich, interwoven stories are where great literature comes from: the closely observed heartbreaks and joys of ordinary people’s lives.”
WILL WEAVER, author of “Sweet Land: New & Collected Stories”
