Have you or a member of your family ever dreamed of being a writer?  Then don’t miss hearing nationally recognized author,  Marion Dane Bauer on Tuesday, October 25, 6:30pm at the John Muir Middle School auditorium in Wausau.  “My Story, Your Story:  Creating Stories Together” is a free, family-friendly presentation blending short readings from some of her books with tips for beginning writers. 

Marion Dane Bauer has written 81 books, receiving a Newbery Honor Award for her book, On My Honor in 1987.  She has written books ranging from baby board books and picture books, to novels for tweens and teens, and books on writing for young people.

Her books will be available at the event for purchase, courtesy of Janke Book Store.  The Marathon County Public Library is providing a free writers journal, which will be given to the first 200 children and teens who attend this event.   Ms. Bauer will be happy to autograph these journals and copies of her books.

Her appearance in Wausau is co-sponsored by the Wisconsin Valley Library Service, Wausau School District, and the Marathon County Public Library.
