A friend of mine, who's in my writer group, had a book launch party this evening. She's Elizabeth M. Rosenow, Betsy. Here is her book of poems about country life, Sandhill Mist, Seasons on a Centennial Farm.
Some other members of the group, one of them my friend Ellen, organized the event. Betsy read poems from the book for about 30 minutes.
If you enjoy seasons, farms and life close to nature you'll like Betsy's work.
The party was held at the Shagway Arts Barn, a fairly new venture, out near Indian Pete Bayou on Hamlin Lake. They sell local handmade art and craft items. Lovely display, nice setting. They even have some hiking trails that I need to go explore.
The evening began with live music by Cheryl Wolfram- a fitting collection of songs for the occasion.
After that, Betsy read, and then we all had cake! The cake was decorated with sheep. Why? you ask. Betsy is the friend who has the Icelandic Sheep.
About 30 people attended, a nice turnout for a first book by a local artist.
She sold a number of books, and we all congratulated her. Way to go, Betsy! You can find Sandhill Mist on Amazon. You won't be disappointed.
