Dear Homefolks

Candace Simar, celebrates the release of her seventh book, “Dear Homefolks” with a reading and book talk at the Brainerd Public Library on Monday, August 28, from noon to 2 p.m.
“Dear Homefolks” is a collection of short stories using research from her popular novels. Simar says, “Some tidbits were just too good to waste and readers keep asking for more.” The stories are set both in frontier Minnesota and modern times.

The book is published by Chip and Jean Borkenhagen of RiverPlace Press who Simar states, “left their artistic imprint on this beautiful book, and I think readers will enjoy it.”
