Would you like to hear how two sisters managed to write a book together? Or how we developed the ideas for Plank Road Summer? Would your class like to hear about the mistakes we made and the things we learned while writing a novel?
As our work schedules permit, we will be available for book signings, book talks, classroom presentations, or writing workshops.
Classroom presentations could be adapted for mid-elementary to high school levels. Topics include The Writing Process, Plank Road Days, The Underground Railroad, Researching Wisconsin History, and related subjects.
We can also shape adult forums and workshops to fit your audience interest.

I’ve just posted a link to this site on our Valparaiso University “New Ideas in Midwest Literature” course blog, hosted by Prof. Arvid Sponberg.
Can’t wait to get your book!
Can’t wait to read the book!!! Sounds like it will fit in perfect with our immigration unit. Congrats!
I just finished PRS, and loved it! Your sister, Sam Meinke, is/was my boy’s pre-school teacher, so I bought my copy from her. I can’t say how much I loved the book. I read it in one day. Yes I did! I would love to see a sequel. Did Matilda marry Mr. Banvard? What else happened to Katie and Florence?? I would love to know.
My own family has quite a history in Alabama and was invovled in the “Free State of Winston” pulling away from the Confederacy. My own Great-great-Grandfather was involved and was the circuit court clerk in 1861.
Anyway, loved the book, want to see more books, keep writing! Thanks so much!
