Have a Marlis Day!

Archive for December 2016

2016-ske-craft-show Indiana authors Dale Glenn of Bloomington and Wini Frances of Washington shared a space with me yesterday at South Knox Elementary’s Christmas craft show. Being retired educators we share more than our love of books. Dale wrote a coming of age novel set in Decker, Indiana, while Wini pens early reader books featuring mice as the main characters.  My middle grade mystery/fantasy novels fit the needs of many parents and grandparents shopping for  pre-teen  readers. The hours from nine until four passed easily, as we had the chance to visit with a lot of unexpected friends. Those dear folks you go for years without meeting, but when you do, it’s “old home week” with fond memories to share and updates on family.  Band members faithfully served us lunch, checking on us often.  I slipped away from our area long enough to buy cinnamon rolls and a Christmas tree ornament from one of the many master crafters.  I was amazed when I learned that over two thousand shoppers attend this annual event. This is a spectacular fund-raiser for South Knox and I must say “Bravo” to the ones who started the whole business. It’s the third year for Dale and me, the first for Wini.  We laughed at Dale’s innovative mop-poster-stand, but it worked. Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you’ll buy someone a book this year.
