We just love this tidbit from author Kate Klise: “As wise woman Lori Benton once told me, you’re nobody if you’ve never been fired. It was only after I got fired from my job as a newspaper columnist that I got serious about doing what I really wanted to do, which was to write books. So remember that if you ever get fired.”
And her favorite song is “Wichita Lineman.” What’s there not to love about her?
Come see why everyone loves and reads Kate Klise when she visits Springfield for Wordfest. She’ll talk about her latest books at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Park Central Branch Library, 128 Park Central Square. She’ll also have books to sell and sign. She’ll be on a panel, “How to Get Published,” with other authors at 2:30 p.m. in the Park Central Office Building, 117 Park Central Square. And — she’ll be among five guest authors at the Wordfest final celebration form 7-9 p.m. Saturday in the old theater next to the History Museum on the Square.
