Meet the Author, Gloria Smit, Friday Feb. 28th at 11 a.m.

Local author Gloria Smit says, “The truth with a twist is funnier than fiction.”  That’s her writing philosophy.  Aspiring to be a humorist, Gloria began crafting mostly true five-minute vignettes for open-mic sessions at the Rural American Writer’s Center in Plainview, MN.  She spins experiences from her life on a Mississippi River bluff as a farmer, a wife, a mother, and a nurse into tales intended to make people "Reluctantly Exposed" book cover created by Jim Smit.laugh.  She has also, over the past 20 years, composed more serious work.  Gloria lives with her husband, Jim, a dog, two cats and a handful of Icelandic sheep near Nelson, WI.   The presentation will consist of reading a few of the stories, question and answers about the book and the writing/publishing process, and book signing. 
Everyone is welcome to this free presentation.  Refreshments will be available.
