Thank you to Wisconsin author Kathleen Ernst for coming to Eagle yesterday and doing her Caroline Abbott American Girl mystery program. There were 109 in attendance! It was exciting to have so many girls and boys express an interest in reading, writing, and history.
In her hour-long illustrated program she shared some of the stories behind the stories of the fifteen children's books she has written for the Middleton, WI-based American Girl company. Afterwards she answered questions from the girls, and posed for photos with them. And the library gave away a beautiful Caroline Abbott doll!
Kathleen Ernst also did a Chloe Ellefson mystery program for adults. She spoke about her first three books and then previewed a fourth book which will release this fall. The setting for the fourth book is Iowa.
