Indiana Arts, Connecting you to a world of art
Author Visit and Book Signing
Presented By Morgan County Historic Preservation Society
Mon, 07/12/2004 Literary Event
   7:00 p.m.
Gwenyth Swain, Nashville, IN, native and children’s book author, will talk about how to incorporate local and family history into fiction. Gwenyth’s new novel, Chig and the Second Spread, does just that. Based on stories told by Gwenyth’s father, Chig and the Second Spread is set in Brown County, Indiana. A powerful mite of a girl—“no bigger than a little red chigger”—Chig tries to find a way to help her neighbors in the hills and hollers make it though the Great Depression. Her desire to become a big person, both in stature and in spirit leads her into many adventures. They culminate in the Great Niplak Train Disaster, which unexpectedly gives everyone a little more to spread between the covers of their sandwiches. Books will be available for sale and signing. Proceeds benefit the Morgan County Historic Preservation Society.
