Learning to See the World as a Writer

October 10, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

Where do your ideas come from?”  is one of the most common questions an author hears. It takes a lot more than a good idea to make a good story. Author Christina Hagmann will talk about learning to see the world as a writer and about reading and writing dangerously.

Christina Hagmann has been a Christmas wreath maker, a pine cone picker, a chainsaw certified member of the Wisconsin Conservation Corp, a teacher, a coach, and an author. Growing up in rural Wisconsin, climbing trees, swimming in creeks, and generally running amok, sparked Christina’s creativity at a young age. Christina will tell the tale of her journey into reading and writing while sprinkling in stories of her unique upbringing. She will discuss the inspiration for her books and why she loves the well-written antagonist.

Christina will read a chapter from her book, followed by an opportunity for the audience to ask questions. Copies of Stratagem will be available for purchase. Please join us for an autographing session after the presentation.
