Central Wisconsin Book Festival
"The Streel" With Mary Logue

Adults

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.

 

Support for the 2021 Central Wisconsin Book Festival was provided through the Community Arts Grant Program of the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin, with funds provided by the Wisconsin Arts Board, a state agency; the Community Foundation; and the B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation.

Support also provided in part by the Ruder Ware Law Firm; the Marathon County Public Library Foundation; Wisconsin Humanities, with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities; CoVantage Cares Foundation; the Portage County Public Library Foundation; McMillan Memorial Library; Wisconsin Public Radio; the Friends of the Marathon County Public Library; Marathon County Historical Society; Whitewater Music Hall; and Janke Book Store.
