Grand Opening

by Jon Hassler
October 12 – November 4, 2018

12-year-old Brendan Foster begins the story in 1945, when his parents decide to leave Minneapolis and buy a run-down grocery store in rural Minnesota. There, his family comes to know the virtues – and the dark side – of living in a small town. Grand Opening is the most autobiographical work by famed writer Jon Hassler, known for Staggerford, Simon’s Night, and other novels about small-town life in Minnesota.



The Sunday, November 4th performance will be audio-described, based on reservations.
