I'm still new to the Stateline Area, so there might be more literary events in Janesville, WI or Rockford, IL. I'll keep looking. Perhaps this is what I will do for the area. Perhaps, I will try to round up all of the local authors in the Stateline Area and put on a grand event! However, I hesitante. I know the monto from my dad's favorite movie is "Build it, and they will come," but I'm not so sure that the Stateline Area is the best of places for such an event, based on what I saw last night.
Here is a list of those who had tables:
- Leslie Anne Deinhammer, Rockton
- Christine J. Dieckhoff, Brodhead
- George Ferriter, Beloit
- Terrence Hatch, Newark
- Dan Langone, Beloit
- Mark Madson, Clinton
- Tom McBride / Ron Nief, Beloit College
- John Porcellino, South Beloit
- Jean Prestbroten, Orfordville
- Mary Van Galder, Janesville
- Diana Vance, Monroe
- Larry Visgar, Beloit
- Kimberly Vogel, Beloit
- Tom Warren, Beloit
- James Wuthrich, Beloit.
Overall, the literary scene in Beloit looks promising. I know there are readers in the area. And, I know that I will be at this even next year with at least my two books if at least one more. I hope to see you there if not sooner.
