Local Author Events Abound
People’s Books, Next Chapter, Boswell all host writers this week
Author Danielle Trussoni is a born and bred Wisconsinite. Trussoni’s newest book, Angelology, her second publication and first work of fiction, is a beautiful tale driven by descendants of angels and a secret history that stretches back a thousand years. This smart and entertaining narrative follows Sister Evangeline in a story that ranges from Nazi-occupied Paris to present-day New York City in the struggle to defeat an ancient evil. Trussoni, a native of La Crosse, Wis., graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and later received an MFA in fiction writing from the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Trussoni will discuss Angelology at Next Chapter Bookshop on March 14 at 2 p.m.
Local writers Glen Jeansonne and Dave Luhrssen are no strangers to collaboration. The duo previously joined forces on the book A Time of Paradox: America Since 1890 and now teams up for Changing Times, a biography of President Barack Obama. Following our nation’s leader on his historic journey to the White House, Changing Times is a frank look at Obama’s formative years. As a professor of history at UW-Milwaukee, Jeansonne focuses his research on 20th-century U.S. history and politics. Luhrssen is the arts and entertainment editor for the Shepherd Express. Both men will appear at Boswell Book Co. on March 18 at 7 p.m.
