Every year since its humble beginning in 1999 with just 21 participants, thousands of writers young and old have spent the month of November working towards the goal of writing a 50,000 word manuscript in just 30 days as part of National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. This year, University of Minnesota writing instructor Maureen Aitken, whose book, The Patron Saint of Lost Girls, won the Nilsen Literary Prize for a first novel, will be leading a workshop at the Galleria Barnes and Noble in Edina that is sure to help writers in their quest. The workshop is titled, “How to Draw Inspiration from Personal Experiences to Develop Characters.” It is being offered on Sat., Nov. 16, 2019, from 1p.m. - 3 p.m.
Cost to attend the workshop will be just $18. Barnes and Noble members qualify for a 10 percent discount. Each attendee will go home with a signed copy of The Patron Saint of Lost Girls. Register for the workshop in advance through Eventbrite at this link No payment is required when you register. The workshop cost of $18 can be paid in person any time between now and Nov. 16 at the Galleria Barnes and Noble in Edina. Once payment is made, attendees will receive a wristband to attend the workshop, and their copy of The Patron Saint of Lost Girls.
A Minnesota Public Radio interview with award-winning author Sheila O’Connor talking about her latest book will be airing very soon. It was recorded on Nov. 11.
Evidence of V: A Novel in Fragments, Facts and Fictions is the story of a talented 15-year-old singer and nightclub entertainer who gets pregnant after falling in love with an older man. She is then sentenced to the Minnesota Home School for Girls in Sauk Centre where she is to receive “rehabilitation,” but she instead endures injustices that will change the course of her life, and the lives of her descendants, forever. O’Connor became particularly interested in what happened at the School after learning her maternal grandmother, a pregnant 15-year-old girl, had been among the inmates at the time of O’Connor’s mother’s birth.
Earlier this month, on Nov. 5,. O'Connor led a presentation at Zenith Bookstore in Duluth. The event was previewed on the WDIO-TV Morning News in Duluth; on Nov. 7, she presented at the North Shore Readers and Writers Festival in Grand Marais, Minn. Sheila led the class: Infinite Possibilities: Point of View; and on Nov. 12, more than 100 people attended her Author Talk at the Hennepin County Library's Edina branch.
Her next public event will be a Fireside Chat at the Hennepin History Museum on Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. Learn more about Sheila O'Connor's work at SheilaOConnor.com.
Former Honeywell Vice President of Technology Ronald E. Peterson spent a weekend in early November selling copies of his debut sci-fi thriller, Gardeners of the Universe, at GalaxyCon Minneapolis . The festival celebrating pop culture took place from Nov. 8 - 10 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Gardeners of the Universe begins in the not too distant future with the births of three children destined to change the world. Rianne grows up to lead biological revolutions. Dan creates sentient computers and guides the direction of human evolution. Sarah, in an age of information dissonance, becomes the most trusted individual on Earth, and convinces the world that it must change. What sets the three apart from the rest of humanity are genetics and “gifts” that were no accident.
The book shows how the children and their totally different families adapt to disruptive new technologies in transportation, medicine, communication, as well as global catastrophe. The focus is on how people will change themselves, through mechanical devices, augmented intelligence, and ultimately altering our genetics, and how these shifts will affect real people.
