Upcoming events

HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A NICE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!   I am excited to re-announce that I have two pans in the fire right now–or more.  First, this Thursday and Friday, I’ll be sitting at a table at the St. Cloud River’s Edge Convention Center .  I’ll be staying close to my table so I can hand out postcards to those attending annual United Methodist Conference, May 30-June 1 with information about Miss Mary MacNicholl, the first ordained woman Methodist minister in Minnesota.  This summer, if she were still alive, she would be celebrating her 60th year.  Unfortunately, Miss Mac died in 1979 from a rare form of leukemia.  I’ve researched her life and would love to come to any group, United Methodist, women’s, men’s, or combined to present her work, challenges, and  stewardship while she served the church.




Next Monday at the Big Lake Great River Library, I’ll be present Clearwater and how to incorporate history into any writing project.  A secret?  Research and research and research.  But that is not all so come out and see me at 5:30 in Big Lake, June 4.

I am also sending out a SAVE THE DATE for Clearwater’s Heritage Days, the first weekend in August.

Watch for the announcement of the next book launch for Pins & Needles, the second in the Main Street series set in Clearwater, Minnesota, in 1909-1910…

Hope to see you soon. and look at my webpage cynthiafrankstupnik.com for updates.

United Methodist Conference and Big Lake Library event

I’ll be sitting at a table at the St. Cloud Convention Center next Thursday and Friday, May 31-June 1 to promote my research, essay, and presentation for Reverend Mary MacNicholl, the first woman ordained in the Minnesota Methodist Church.  I can bring her story to any group interested in learning about this path forger who really had to break through the glass ceiling back in the 1950s to become a minister.

June 4, Monday, at 5:30 I’ll be presenting “Clearwater  and the Art of Historical Writing” at the Big Lake Library.


Hope to see some of you soon.


Just a reminder:

I’ll be joining in all the fun at the Clearwater Crafts & Vendors sale this Saturday, May 19, 10-3, at the Lions’ Pavilion in Clearwater, Minnesota….. I’ll be bringing books and my sister and I will bring many new Main Street SUNDRIES, formally, Jennie’s Corner’s products.


Hope to see you there.  Watch for more EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENTS coming SOON!
