Join Phyllis at the Deep Valley Book Festival

By September 16, 2020January 25th, 2021No Comments

One of the silver linings to this awful pandemic is that Phyllis can participate as an author in two book festivals at once: the Deep Valley Book Festival in Mankato, Minnesota, as well as the South Dakota Festival of Books. Both will be held online during the first weekend of October. The DVPF is traditionally the largest event of its kind in southern Minnesota. All events this year are free through Zoom. Their links will be posted on the festival website.

In addition to being an online exhibitor at the DVBF, Phyllis will participate in three panels:

  • 11AM, Saturday, October 3: “Writing the Truth” (pre-recorded). Registration link will be posted on the DVPF website the day of the event.
  • 2PM, Saturday, October 3: “Live Q&A with Festival Authors.” Registration link here.
  • 2PM, Sunday, October 4: “The Road to Publishing” (pre-recorded). Registration link will be posted on the DVPF website the day of the event.
