Upcoming Events in July!

July is a busy month for me.

July 4th - 7th I'll be at the wild and crazy CONvergence 2013 talking on a few panels and just having a fun time.

July 10th (Wednesday) I'll be giving a talk at the Maplewood Area Historical Society at 7:00 pm about the ox cart/Red River trails. This is open to the public, so if you're in the area, come on over! The MAHS is located at the Bruentrup Heritage Farm, 2170 East County Road D, Maplewood, MN 55117.

July 20 & 21, I'll be part of the Literary Landing at the Minnesota River Arts Fair. We'll be giving readings, signing books, and just chatting it up with anyone and everyone who stops on by. It's located at The Landing in Shakopee, and goes from 10 - 5 both Saturday and Sunday. Erin Hart and Paddy O'Brien are the Keynote speakers. I'll be giving a talk/reading at 1:30 on Saturday and 1:00 on Sunday. Other authors there will be Pat Dennis, Jan Dunlap, Susan Koefod, Kathryn Sullivan, Evelyn Klein, Cristina Oxtra, Sheyna Galyan, Debbie Lampi, and Connie Claire Szarke. There will also be over fifty visual artists, music, and history! Should be fun.

Ox Cart Angel in Crosslake!

Last week I gave a talk on about the ox cart/Red River trails to the Crosslake (MN) Historical Society. The even was held outside in the middle of the Old Pioneer Village. Beautiful weather, great people, and delicious treats provided by the historical society members. I think I only got one mosquito bite during the whole thing, and that's saying something! Special thanks to Mary Hoag, the CHS president, for letting me come up and talk.
