The 2019 Fogle Author Series presents its final author, Mindy McGinnis, who will speak at Rodman Public Library on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 2:00 p.m., in the Main Auditorium. McGinnis is an Edgar Award-winning author of multiple novels that span many genres. From historical to fantasy, contemporary to gothic thriller, her books deliver grit, truth, and an unflinching look at humanity and the world around us. Her latest novel is Heroine, with Be Not Far From Me to be released in 2020.
A ninth-generation farmer, McGinnis attributes much of her character to growing up on an Ohio farm, learning the value of physical labor, and the harshness of the natural world early in life. Much of her writing reflects small-town living and aspects of rural poverty. A former school librarian, she still lives and works in her hometown, and is dedicated to making herself available to financially disadvantaged school districts and communities.
McGinnis has done multiple interviews and guest posts over the years, and has been featured on such outlets as NPR and PBS. She has also been a guest on a myriad of podcasts, blogs, and websites. Books will be available for purchase at the time of the author's visit which the author will then sign after the program. This event is free and open to the public. No registration is needed.
