Pacing Dakota, published by North Dakota State University Press, is a collection of stories from across North Dakota–stories that are packed with human interest, but also have much to say about community and life on the northern plains in our times. People of the region know Prof. Isern’s voice from Plains Folk, his weekly feature on Prairie Public Radio. He brings the same evocative narrative voice to the printed page in Pacing Dakota. The hardback work was published in July and is now in its second printing.

The author is keen to meet friends and grads of NDSU–and to sign books for them to read or to gift to friends, family, and fellow fans.

With Prof. Isern on the Holiday Book Tour will be Dr. Suzzanne Kelley, Editor-in-Chief, North Dakota State University Press. Dr. Kelley is happy to visit with prospective authors and others interested in the work of the press.
