For the last installment of the Midwest Writing Center/Bettendorf Public Library Read Local partnership in 2012, the MWC will host Ann Boaden for a reading and book signing on Saturday, December 8th from 1-3pm. Ann is the co-author of two young adult novels, short fiction, and creative non-fiction, including her most recent work, Light and Leaven: Women Who Shaped Augustana's First Century, published by the Augustana Historical Society in 2011. Light and Leaven contains portraits of women who changed the character of Augustana College by their vision, energy, and dauntless love, set within the historical context in which they lived and worked. She will be reading from Light and Leaven at the event, and will have her other titles available for purchase and signing (two of which she appears under the name of Ann Young, with co-author Karin Youngberg: The Nine Days Wonder published by East Hall Press in 2002 and The Mystery of the Singing Mermaid originally published by Weekly Reader Books in 1987). The event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served.
