The Good Thunder Reading Series’ mission is to promote literature, inspire creativity, and foster lively conversations about why writing matters. We bring acclaimed writers from diverse backgrounds and literary traditions to Mankato, Minnesota. During their visit, each leads a morning workshop, presents an afternoon talk, and gives an evening reading followed by a book signing.

All of our events are free and open to the public.
