Book Event Season is here

Book Event Season is here by CK Van Dam

Living in a region with four seasons has its benefits. Most people hunker down in the winter – unless they’re winter sports nuts. (Skiers and ice fishermen, I’m looking at you.) I spent the -40 degree days of winter of 2023-24 writing my third book, Medicine Creek Claim. Now it’s time to introduce the new book during Book Event Season.

Book Event Season is when authors meet with readers at book fairs and speaking events. I’ve already presented two events, “Women Tamed the Frontier,” through the South Dakota Humanities Council’s Speakers Bureau.

I’ll discuss book #2, Lone Tree Claim, at the SD Ag Heritage Museum on Sunday, April 21 at 2 pm. That’s a “full circle” moment for this story since the inspiration for Lone Tree Claim came from an exhibit at the museum.

Then, I’ll pause until May, when I can introduce readers to Medicine Creek Claim.

If you’re interested in hearing about women homesteaders or simply want your “On the Dakota Frontier” book signed, you can find me at these events:
