Northwoods venues host 'Hikes' author at meet-the-author event

Special thanks to In a New Light Gallery of Northwest Passages and to the Bookstore at Fitger's for hosting my Headin' to the Cabin meet-the-author event, the former on Friday, Aug. 2, and the latter on Saturday, Aug. 3.

Northwest Passages, in Siren, Wis., offers treatment facilities and centers for teen boys who are at-risk or suffering from mental illness in Northwest Wisconsin (Siren, Spooner and Frederic). The Bookstore at Fitger's, in Duluth, Minn., is located in the former Fitger's Brewery, which has been converted into a retail-entertainment complex on Duluth's Lakewalk.

There's one last stop in the summer book tour for "Headin' to the Cabin": I'll be at the City of Lakes Book Fair on Saturday, Aug. 10, at Annz’s Books in at the Chetek, Wis. The fair runs 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Hope to see you there!
