For our Bookshelf series, we asked Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak to select a book that is important to him. He selected "The Heartsong of Charging Elk" by James Welch.
Rybak says reading is a priority in his family. In fact, he and his wife regularly go on dates that end with a stop at a favorite bookstore. He talked with MPR's Cathy Wurzer.
