“If I found myself exiled to that mythical island where I was allowed only one book, I would take this copy of the Saint Paul Almanac—first for its beauteous and colorful design, second for its wondrous works made of words, and third for the community that created, chose, and found ways to carry this wonder to you, dear reader. The Saint Paul Almanac is beautiful and true; reading it makes me less lonely in the world, gives me hope, and soothes my jangled nerves.”
– Joyce Sutphen, Minnesota Poet Laureate

“There are stories of grief, anger and injustice as well as stories of love, affirmation, and celebration. There are stories of resistance that inspire us to hope for a more just world. We also noticed a thread of profound resilience: the courage to take a risk, the ability to adapt, the determination to follow one’s dreams, and the spirit of working together. We hope that these stories, poems and artwork will be treasured as representative of the beauty of Saint Paul as well as where change, inclusion, and healing are still needed.”
