September Tea features local authors at library
Three northern Wisconsin authors will share their creative experiences on Sunday, September 8, from 1 to 3 p.m. at T.B. Scott Free Library in Merrill as part of the Words Worth Hearing series.
“A September Tea,” featuring refreshments prepared and presented by authors Ann M. Andrashie, Barbara Ann Philleo, and Chris Loehmer Kincaid, will also be an opportunity for the authors to share their experiences as authors in northern Wisconsin. Andrashie, Kincaid, and Philleo will all have copies of their books available for sale and signing at the presentation.
In addition to the repast provided by the presenters, The Checkered Churn and First Street Coffee Station will also provide refreshments.
Ann Andrashie’s novel, “Dog Island,” sets a young girl in the Wisconsin northwoods, where she forges a friendship with a dog gone wild in the swamps. Will she seek out the legendary Dog Island, next to the Apostles, to save the dog’s life and that of her wolf pups-or will she come to her senses before it’s too late? A portion of sales of Dog Island supports local animal shelters.
Chris Kincaid’s travel memoir, “A Time for Every Purpose Under Heaven: One Woman’s Trip to Africa-My Story,” recounts her 2006 adventure to Kenya to educate about disease prevention and spread the word of Christ. Kincaid remains committed today to her medical assisting career and her faith, woven together into this book.
Barb Philleo, a mother of five, puts the same effort into her writing as she did in raising her family, and sets out to make an impact on youth in both. Her successful books written for young people include “Candlecurse: The Adventures of Molly Wiggins & Taco,” a sequel, “Monster Mountain Mystery: The Adventures of Molly Wiggins & Taco,” and her newest book, “Sticks and Stones.”
