Upcoming Events and Updates for Clearwater, Minnesota, author books and events.

Pins & Needles is in the hands of the publisher after many editing projects.  I am thankful to friends, relatives, and my editor from Heritage Books for doing such a good job.  Writers are mostly the worst editors ever. Publisher/editor is working on the cover.  We should know soon when the launch date is!!!  We are still thinking Oct 13, 2018, at the historic Clearwater United Methodist Church on Main Street, Clearwater.  Maude’s home sat kitty-corner of the church.   Thank you, Clearwater History Group for doing such a wonderful job on your new webpage!!!

Hopefully, we will have a cover design to share asap.

The article, “Mary MacNicholl: A Woman With Vision,” is out being edited and approved by contributors.  So far good comments.  I am happy.  I am proud to have had such an excellent role model during my teen years.  She was that, as well, to so many others.  Her power of influence lives on.  She broke through the ceiling for others as the first woman to be ordained Methodist in Minnesota.

I am excited to tell you about a number of event dates coming up.

August 4-5: 1st I’ll be attending Clearwater’s Heritage Days and Rendezvous, in Clearwater, Minnesota.  I’ll be there from 9:30 a.m. (or so) until 3 or 4 p.m. on Saturday, and on Sunday 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

You’ll find me at the Clearwater Dam where the village history began .

I’ll be up at the Great River Regional Library–Clearwater--at 11 a.m. on Saturday
