Poetry opened the doors: Hedin honored for his written works and for creating a center that fosters others' works
For Robert Hedin, receiving the Kay Sexton Award is not about his writing skills. Rather, it is recognition of the role the Anderson Center plays in promoting literacy in Minnesota.
Hedin will receive the Sexton Award April 13 at the 25th annual Minnesota Book Awards Gala in Minneapolis. It is presented annually to an individual or organization in recognition of longstanding dedication and outstanding work in fostering books, reading and literary activity in the state.
