"The Streel" With Mary Logue
The Central Wisconsin Book Festival welcomes Mary Logue, author of the Claire Watkins mysteries and four books of poetry, to the Portage County Public Library to discuss her latest novel - the first in a new series!
From the famine-stricken city of Galway to the bustling New York harbor, to the mansions of Summit Avenue in St. Paul, and finally to the raucous hustle of boomtown Deadwood, Logue's "The Streel" conjures the romance and the perils, and the tricky everyday realities, of a young immigrant surviving by her wits and grace in nineteenth century America.
Logue has published thirteen mysteries, nine in the Claire Watkins series, as well as poetry and young adult nonfiction and fiction. She lives on both sides of the Mississippi River, in Minnesota and Wisconsin, with writer Pete Hautman.
This event at the Portage County Public Library in Stevens Point is free and open to the public, so please be aware that some safety measures may be in place. We will update this and other promos closer to the event with any recommendations or requirements. Call the PCPL at 715-346-1544 for more information.
