Dakota Datebook: in print and for sale


August 12, 2019

Prairie Public’s beloved radio series, “Dakota Datebook,” has been compiled into a book, with a nugget of history for each day of the year.

Prairie Public will debut the book on Aug. 24 at 8 p.m. with a launch party on the Lewis & Clark Riverboat in Bismarck. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the dock, and are available at

The book was prepared for publication by a UND publishing practicum led by David Haeselin, William Caraher and the UND Digital Press. The practicum students selected essays for from all the Dakota Datebooks written over the years.

Author and historian Clay Jenkinson also gave the new book a rave review: “When you listen to Dakota Datebook on Prairie Public, you are sometimes so taken with the audio performances that you forget how well these short explorations of North Dakota life are written.”

Prairie Public Broadcasting, headquartered in Fargo, is a non-profit member station of PBS and NPR that provides public television services throughout North Dakota, northwestern Minnesota, southern Manitoba and parts of Montana and South Dakota; public radio service to North Dakota; and educational and technological services to communities and individuals across its coverage area.
