Lois Hart Signing Mystery at the Old Church: A Gingerbread Gang Adventure
September 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Meet author Lois Hart for a spooky Friday the Thirteenth signing of her new book, “Mystery at the Old Church: A Gingerbread Gang Adventure,” Sept. 13 from noon to 2 pm.
The author says of her retro mystery adventure “My sister, Jane Miner, works as a volunteer at the Codington County Heritage Museum. About a year ago, she suggested that I try to write a book for the museum, aimed at young readers and combining some history and geography of the town. I decided to try.
What kind of book would pre-teens and young teens like to read? When I was that age, I like mysteries. I hope today’s kids agree. The ‘story’ is made up. The crime and the suspects did not exist. They came from my imagination. But a lot of the book is true as I remembered our activities, growing up in Watertown, South Dakota, in the 1050s — before TV, computers and video games.
So I invite readers of all ages to time-travel with me, back sixty-five years to an earlier time. I hope you enjoy the trip.”
