Having difficulty writing your book's love scene? Are you at a loss for words?
Hear from Kourtney Heintz, author of The Six Train to Wisconsin, as she dishes out advice on how to craft your steamy scenes. Bring your questions and your notebook for this unique writing workshop.
This event is free for adults and will be near the fireplace on the main level. Kourtney will have autographed books available for purchase. Refreshments will be served.
Six Train was a 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards Semifinalist. Since Six Train’s release in May 2013, Heintz was featured in Connecticut’s Republican American. The article was picked up by the Associated Press and ran nationally. She was also a guest on CT Style. In Wisconsin, she was featured in the Price County Daily and the Park Falls Herald.
She’s been touring with her book during the past 14 months. She started with several local appearances in CT in the spring of 2013 and then headed out to Butternut, WI, to celebrate Pioneer Days in July 2013 with an author reception and rode in their parade. Her book signing in Butternut sold out in under two hours. She was also invited by RJ Julia Booksellers to speak at a local author night in Madison, CT. She spoke and signed books at Hart House at the University of Toronto. She had an author night that included exhibiting her photography from the book and signing books at Salon 2b in New York, NY.

This lapsit program is geared to infants, ages 0-24 months. We are offering this program in conjunction with DeKalb 4-C. The first half of the 30 minute program will be led by an early childhood facilitator who will incorporate music, movements, and stories in her program. This will be followed by play time with developmental toys and a chance to interact with the babies and other caregivers. No sign-up is necessary.
Older siblings of the infants attending Book Babies are invited to join Ms. Marti in a nearby space for the weekly themed program and craft. This program is also open to other caregivers and children, ages 2-5.
Infants through toddler-age children and their parents are invited to join Miss Marti on the dragon carpet for a morning of fun with stories and songs for little ones!
