Author visits

On October 3rd, at 6:30, author Mike Flinn will be talking about the Adel bank robbery and his book Most Exciting Day. Mike has written several books about the area and would love to visit with you.  About Mike – I came to the writing game late, after spending the greater part of my life in other pursuits.  I have a great interest in the history of our little corner of the world.  I wrote my first book after retiring and running out of things to do quicker than I, or my dear wife, thought.  I spent a cold Iowa winter at my computer researching and writing “Most Exciting Day,” the story of an actual 1895 bank robbery in my hometown of Adel, Iowa.


On November 9th, at 6:30, join Rebecca Fjelland Davis as she discusses her new book.  Slider’s Son, a young adult novel, features Bob Feller as a character!
