Jeanne Cooney lives in Kennedy, MN. Her third book in the “Hot Dish Heaven Mystery” series is called “A Potluck of Murder and Recipes” and was recently published.
Jeanne has also been very active in Kennedy after moving there when she retired from the Department of Justice in the Twin Cities. Recently, she received a grant from the NWMAC to pay for a community mural painted by senior-citizen artists from around the area and for four art classes taught by those same senior-citizen artists.
A group of approximately six senior-citizen artists from around the area designed and painted a wall mural in Kennedy, with community volunteers–adults and teens– making this project a multi-generational, area-wide endeavor.
