Central Wisconsin Book Festival
Cornerstone Press Author Panel

Adults

The Central Wisconsin Book Festival welcomes four writers who all published books through UW-Stevens Point's Cornerstone Press for a virtual discussion about their experiences!

Each of the four will share a short presentation about their work and how they came to publish through Cornerstone Press, which is produced through the Dept. of English at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. We'll also have time for audience questions.

Joining us for this discussion will be Patricia Ann McNair, author of three books, including the 2020 Cornerstone title "Responsible Adults"; writer and editor Robert Miltner, author of the 2021 Cornerstone book "Ohio Apertures"; poet Margaret Rozga, whose fifth book of poems "Holding My Selves Together" also was published in 2021 by Cornerstone; and writer, editor and teacher Jamie Lyn Smith, whose short story collection "Township" is forthcoming from Cornerstone.

This virtual event is free and open to the public. Click the "Attend" button on this page to join the event when it begins, or see our Facebook event page. Call the Portage County Public Library at 715-346-1544 for more information.
