Seven Stories Workshop with Jane Kirkpatrick

Famous author, Jane Kirkpatrick, is coming to the

Brownsville Art Center!

On February 17, 2018 Jane Kirkpatrick will be giving a workshop at the Brownsville Art Center. The title of the writing (and life) workshop is “Seven stories that hold writers (and others) back, and how we can re-write them”. This workshop will fit in perfectly with the Art Association’s recent decision to create more writing events.

Jane is not a stranger to Brownsville as she has presented here twice in the past. First in 2010 as a guest speaker for the Brownsville Women’s Study Club and again in 2015 for her book release of The Memory Weaver which was held at Atavista Farm. The book is a historical fiction about Eliza Spalding Warren, who once lived here. Jane worked with Brownsville citizen, Linda McCormick, who wrote a non-fiction book about the Spalding family, and used much of her research in The Memory Weaver.

Jane Kirkpatrick is internationally recognized for her lively presentations and well-researched stories that encourage and inspire. A New York Times Bestselling author, her works have appeared in more than 50 national publications including The Oregonian, Private Pilot and Daily Guideposts. With more than 1.5 million books in print, her 30 novels and non-fiction titles draw readers from all ages and genders. Most are historical novels based on the lives of actual historical women often about ordinary women who lived extraordinary lives. Her works have won numerous national awards including the WILLA Literary Award, the Carol Award, USABestBooks.com, Will Roger’s Medallion Award and in 1996, her first novel, A Sweetness to the Soul, won the prestigious Wrangler Award from the Western Heritage and National Cowboy Museum. Her novels have also been finalists for the Spur Award, the Oregon Book Award, the Christy, Reader’s Choice and the WILLA in both fiction and non-fiction. Several titles have been Literary Guild and Book of the Month choices and been on the bestsellers list for independent bookstores across the country, in the Pacific Northwest and the Christian Booksellers Association. Her books have been translated into German, Dutch, Finnish and Chinese.
