‘Hikes’ guidebook author appearing at Hudson bookstore Saturday

You’ll can meet a number of west-central Wisconsin and Twin Cities writers – including yours truly – at the Local Author Extravaganza! on Saturday, Feb. 15 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Chapter2Books in historic downtown Hudson.

Since opening, Chapter2 has done a fantastic job of carrying books by regional authors, as well as offering a wide selection of other titles, including an impressive collection of children’s books.

A partial list of the authors who will be at Saturday’s event include Kate Hopper, William Kent Krueger, Christine Husom, Jeannie Roberts, Connie Kingrey, Dan Woll, Sarah Stonic, Michelle Sailor, Susan Sims Moody, Gary Porter, Barbara Deese, Lee Kisling, David Housewright, Jaclynn Heron, Carolyn Bohlke, Joanne Vruno, and Mike Yurk. My time slot is 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

You can chat with the authors, have them autograph their books, and you might even be able to talk a couple into reading from them. Chapter2Books is located at 422 2nd St., Hudson, Wis.
