Zenith City Press founder Tony Dierckins—a native of St. Paul, Minnesota, and Duluth resident since 1984—has written more than two dozen books, from the fun and fascinating Duct Tape and WD-40 books to critically acclaimed illustrated histories celebrating Duluth, Minnesota, and the western Lake Superior Regional (listed below). Along the way Dierckins has written three Northeast Minnesota Book Award winners and two Minnesota Book Award finalists, and is a past recipient of the Duluth Depot Foundation’s Historic Preservation and Interpretation Award.
