Every state has colors; people just view them differently. Did you know that in Minnesota the color of rain is purple? Or that when Minnesotans see blue, they see a land of 10,000 lakes? Or that instead of playing Duck, Duck, Goose, kids in Minnesota play Duck, Duck, Gray Duck?

Join author Ryan J. Schroeder as he explores the state of Minnesota and the colors that surround us. Through a reading of his book, “Colors of Minnesota,” and a discussion as to how he chose which objects to represent which colors, his presentation will entertain and engage children as they learn more about colors and the state of Minnesota.

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. To learn more about Arrowhead Legacy Events, please see our calendar at, follow us on Twitter @ALSLibraryNews, or like us on Facebook at
