Author Festival News: Greendale, Wisconsin

News seems to come in bunches, and that’s especially exciting when the news is all good.

A recent post announced my venture into a new group blog focused on historical fiction, interviews, and reviews (The Storied Past, here). I hope you’ll take a look, if you haven’t already done so, and even subscribe to get each new post delivered to your inbox. 

Screen Shot 2016-04-08 at 2.10.53 PMWhile I’m inviting your participation, here’s news anyone in SE Wisconsin will want to know: Greendale Public Library Foundation is sponsoring their inaugural AUTHOR FESTIVAL for young readers. I’m delighted to be one of ELEVEN Wisconsin authors and illustrators scheduled to present programs throughout the day. Details (and a schedule that’s easier to read) can be downloaded here. This coincides with the annual SPRING INTO GREENDALE celebration featuring special events and attractions in a charmingly historic downtown village. (Details here.)

Here’s a description of my part of the program that day:

12:45-1:15 Free workshop for ages 8 to adults by author Sandy Brehl, includes a fun writing activity to better understand fact and imagination in historical fiction, and a simple listen/tell participation activity. 

There will  be something for everyone of every age, including a craft table, contests, and book sales by Boswell Books with author signings throughout the day. 


I’m looking forward to seeing old friends and making lots of new ones that day. With any luck at all I hope to share even more news by then, including the title of Book Two in the Norway Occupation trilogy and some options for staying connected more often in the future. Anything you care to do to help spread the word about this festival is welcome.
