CLC remembers Jon Hassler with Joe Plut


Central Lakes College on Nov. 27 marked the fourth anniversary of naming its Brainerd campus library after a former instructor who became one of Minnesota’s most beloved authors at “A Night with Jon Hassler.”

The library event that attracted more than 100 guests featured retired CLC instructor Joe Plut reading from the forthcoming publication, “A Simon’s Night Journal.” The new companion book offers insight from the late author while writing his 1979 novel, “Simon’s Night.”
