This event has ended.

Kathleen's lively, richly-illustrated program will take readers 'behind the scenes' to reveal the people, places, and the past that inspired her to write the now nine books featuring museum curator (and reluctant sleuth) Chloe Ellefson and her police officer boyfriend Roelke McKenna.

Her presentation will include details about her newest Chloe mystery, The Lacemaker's Secret. Kathleen will also talk about how her years at Old World Wisconsin influenced her Chloe character, how her research into police work helped shape Roelke, and how she researches and writes their stories.

Afterwards Kathleen will answer questions, give away door prizes, and sign her books (copies of which will be available for purchase).
