Central Wisconsin Book Festival
Homegrown: A Local Writers Panel

Adults & Teens

Hear from local writers about their experiences living and writing in the Badger State during this Central Wisconsin Book Festival panel discussion! 
We'll be joined in this discussion by writers Pamela Fullerton, Sue Reetz, Nancy Runner, Connie Sexauer, Tara Sparbell and Renee Wildes - all of whom live in central Wisconsin. They'll share their thoughts and experiences writing and trying to get writing published while living in a (relatively) rural area, why they continue to live in Wisconsin rather than pursue a writing career in a bigger city or different state, and if (or how) Wisconsin fits into their own writing. We'll also have plenty of time for audience questions, and a book signing will follow the discussion. 
Free and open to the public, no registration required. Call 715-261-7230 for more information.
