John Reimringer’s “Vestments”

Vestments-FINAL.jpg

This morning while sub-hosting on Midmorning I spent an hour in studio with Saint Paul author John Reimringer, and had a delightful conversation with him about writing, capturing the history of Saint Paul, and growing up Catholic. Reimringer set his book in the mid-1990s, despite the fact that he only moved to Minnesota in 2001. He says he immediately connected with the city, which is where his father grew up.

“Vestments” has already drawn some national attention for how it gets into the head of a young priest questioning his career path.
