Spring is in the air, more or less, and Barnes & Noble in Racine is celebrating this Saturday with it’s sixth annual Spring Author’s Day. I’ll be part of the discussion on horror and fiction in general between 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m.
Childrens’ authors will open the event from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, including Karen Franco (JACOB’S HOOP), Norma Lundstrom (ALL FAMILIES ARE SPECIAL), Rachel McNamara (MISTER E. CATERPILLAR), and Jennifer Nitz (RUBIX RUCKUS REUBENSTEIN TAKES HIMSELF ON A HIKE).
The horror and genre fiction authors’ discussion is next, featuring Dave Benton (X FILES: TRUST NO ONE), Bridget Birdsall (DOUBLE EXPOSURE), JoBe Cerny (TAYLOR STREET FILE OF RED CIN), W.D. Gagliani (WOLF’S TRAP), G.J. Wise (SPIRITWOOD), and me (LOSING TOUCH).
From 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., local interest and history authors take the stage, including George Fennell (RACINE, WISCONSIN), Carol Schaufel (BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND YOU), and Barbara & Ken Wardius (WISCONSIN LIGHTHOUSES).
Theology becomes the focus from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. with authors Anita Meyer (THE PRIMORDIAL LANGUAGE), Alice Stacionis (THE JOURNEY TO NOW AND BEYOND), and Darlene, Junia, Rodney, Sheryl & Titus Waldner (HUTTERITES: OUR STORY OF FREEDOM) taking the stage.
From 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., mingle and chat with the authors during the open house, and maybe pick up a signed copy of a book or two that piques your interest. Barnes & Noble in Racine brings writers and readers together on Saturday, April 4th, so if you’re a reader, you don’t want to miss this!
