Scout & Morgan Books welcomes award-winning author, Anika Fajardo to present her memoir, Magical Realism for Non-Believers: A Memoir of Finding Family. This intriguingly titled book tells the story of how Anika came to be a Minnesotan. “He loved Colombia too much to leave it. The explanation from her Minnesotan mother was enough to satisfy a child’s curiosity about her missing father. But at twenty-one, Anika Fajardo wanted more. She wanted to know her father better and to know what kind of country could have such a hold on him. And so, in 1995, Fajardo boarded a plane and flew to Colombia to discover a birthplace that was foreign to her and a father who was a stranger. Family, she comes to find, is where you find it and what you make of it.”
Anika Fajardo was born in Colombia and raised in Minnesota. She has earned awards from the Jerome Foundation, the Minnesota State Arts Board, and the Loft Literary Center. The manuscript for Magical Realism for Non-Believers was a finalist for the Bakeless Literary Prize in Creative Nonfiction. She is a writer, editor, and teacher. She lives with her family in Minneapolis. Books are in-stock.
