    I am wondering if you would consider my novel, A Mile of Dreams, as a selection for this program. I am a 1968 graduate of Rosemount High and the story is set in Troy (Rosemount). It’s about a teenager who wants to go out for track his senior year, but he is the only son of a dairy farmer and freeing him to run threatens the family farm. It’s a realistic view of Rosemount in the late ’60s, the disappearance of family farms, a “Rocky” like sport story, and a great coming of age story. Excellent reviews at If interested, I can be reached at 651-216-1789. email is
