NATIONAL AUTHOR TO VISIT VERMILLION PUBLIC LIBRARY

18 Church St

On Monday, March 9th, at 6:30 pm, award-winning and nationally-recognized author Ben Mikaelsen will present “Finding the Heart of the Story”. Mikaelsen will share the challenges faced in creating his books. The presentation will allow a wonderful view inside Ben’s research as he tries to uncover the “soul of a story”. These experiences include raising a 700-pound black bear, living with the homeless, working with Dolphins, attending Space camp, going undercover with Drug Enforcement Agents and living with the Maasai in Africa. The diversity of Ben’s writing and research is what has made his books so appealing to readers.

Earlier in the day, Mikaelsen will be working with middle and high school English classes in writing workshops. His visit is sponsored by the Siegrist Fund, the Vermillion Public Schools, and the Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library.

Ben Mikaelsen is winner of the International Reading Association Award and the Western Writer’s Golden Spur Award. His novels have been nominated to and have won many State readers Choice awards. These novels include Rescue Josh McGuire, Sparrow Hawk Red, Stranded, Countdown, Petey, Touching Spirit Bear, Red Midnight, Tree Girl and Ghost of the Spirit Bear.
Ben is known for his in-depth research and the magical worlds he creates. His research has included flying to the North Pole, going undercover with narcotics agents, living with the homeless in Mexico and with the Massai in Africa, riding a horse across the United States from Minnesota to Oregon, boating the length of the Mississippi, driving overland from Montana to the tip of South America (the Terra del Fuego), over 1000 parachute jumps and racing sled dogs in Northern Minnesota.

There is no cost for this library event, however, we recommend arriving early for the best seats.

The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is located at 18 Church Street in Vermillion. For more information call the Library at 605-677-7060.
