Our heartfelt thanks to all who attended this year’s BWA Fall Festival. Our speaker, Angela Foster, was just awarded a 2017 Artist Initiative project grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board to complete her memoir “Falling Away.” Events will include a public reading, as well as a memoir writing workshop in Pine City. We look forward to forthcoming details about the workshop. Congratulations, Angela!
