Children's Author Tammi Sauer To Speak at Edmond Library

A chicken is one of the most versatile of potential meals, but who knew a chicken could dance? 

You’ll learn all about it, and about how to increase your chances of success as a writer for children, when you visit the Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, on Monday, August 23 for “Psst! Secrets to Getting a Children’s Book Published with Author Tammi Sauer.”  Sauer’s book “Chicken Dance” won the 2010 Oklahoma Book Award, the 2009 NAPPA Gold Medal Award, and was named a 2010 Chicago Public Library Best of the Best book.  Her talk begins at 7:00p.m. and lasts until 8:00.

“This program should be a lot of fun,” said librarian Ronna Davis.  “But beyond just fun, Tammi really knows what she’s talking about when she talks about successful writing for children, and she’s also very good at getting ideas across to a variety of people.”

Tammi Sauer lives in Edmond with her family, a dog, two geckos and a tankful of fish.  She lists her hobbies as reading, skiing, spending time with family and friends, going to the movies, and eating out as often as possible.

The Tammie Sauer talk is free of charge and open to everyone.  Call 341-9282 with questions.
