  • Released: January 2022
  • Genre: Memoirs

Fred Liljegren was born during the Baby Boom. He grew up in the Cold War and came of age during Vietnam. Raised in rural Minnesota, he milked cows during the farm crisis years and witnessed the decline of the small dairy farmer.

We all live history in our own unique way; how we respond to the barrage of life is what makes us who we are. In Fredtime Stories: A Mostly Rural Life, readers take a walk through the fields of the family farm, foreign shores of military service, the halls of academia, and home again, as described by Liljegren with wit and wisdom, story by story. Fred and David met while serving as substitute teachers at Parkers Prairie High School. Fredtime Stories is the most recent of a number of projects they have worked on together.

What this author said about working with us...

This was my first book and I had a lot of concerns regarding publishing. In hindsight, this was silly. The staff at Luminare Press was easy to work with, responsive to any and all questions, and encouraging. I definitely plan to work with them on my next project. David O'Brien
