Deep Valley Book Festival


Please join me at the Deep Valley Book Festival in Mankato on Saturday, October 1, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. The new venue this year is the WOW Zone in Mankato. The keynote speaker is the best-selling, award-winning author Curtis Sittenfeld. She’ll speak at 3:30.

The author tables will be open from 9 to 3. More than 60 local authors–INCLUDING ME–representing many genres will be available to sell and sign copies of their books. I’ll have copies of all my books available: Straight River, Castle Danger, Dangerous Straits, and Cooked to Death, Vol. V: Restaurant in Peace

This year’s festival looks to be the best DVBF yet. The weather will be perfect for the event, and a trip to Mankato from the Twin Cities or wherever you are is a wonderful fall day trip.

In addition, there’ll be book giveaways, prize drawings, activities for the kids, and the annual presentation of the Young Writer and Artist Competition (YWAC) awards. So much packed into one fun day for readers and writers.

Spread the word even if you can’t make it. With fall here and winter approaching all too quickly as it usually does in Minnesota, this will be a fantastic opportunity to stock up on books to read when it’s too cold to do anything outside but snuggle up next to the fireplace (or the heater) with a cup of your favorite beverage and soft music playing in the background.
