Lakefly Writers Conference and Honor In the Air
On May 5 and 6, 2023, I was a presenter at last weekend’s Lakefly Writer’s Conference. Lakefly, which takes place in Oshkosh, is a major Midwest writer’s gathering. I was there because my anthology of Wisconsin stories, Red Road Redemption was recently published.
In acknowledgement of the tremendous effort that goes into writing and editing a documentary
of this magnitude, the table I was allowed as a featured writer was devoted half to Red Road
Redemption and half to Honor in the Air. The materials I displayed garnered a lot of interest and
the handouts about Captain Scott Alwin went quickly. Next time I’ll know to take more of them.
This year one of the featured author/speakers at the two day convention was Wisconsin’s own
Michael Perry. Michael mentioned to a group how much he admired my sister and fellow HITA team member, Penny Kleinhans Alwin. He called her a dedicated and charismatic advocate for the
project. I certainly agree. I think all of the team members are committed to seeing this important
project successfully completed.
This summer, be on the lookout for our speaking engagements at the EAA and at your local
Veteran’s Posts. If your post hasn’t had one of our highly praised presentations (they're
absolutely free) call any of the Posts who’ve had us speak for a glowing recommendation
about this fascinating story of a true Wisconsin hero, then give me a call to set up a date and time
that fits your schedule. We would love to share the story with you.
And Happy Spring!.
