Local Authors Sue Berg and Len Harris holding events in Gays Mills on April 20

On Saturday, April 20, Gays Mills will welcome two well known and popular authors at two venues.

From 11am until 2 p.m., local author, Sue Berg, will be at the Driftless Made gift shop in the Mercantile Center in Uptown Gays Mills with her new book, fifth in the Driftless mystery series, Driftless Insurrection.

Sue lives with her husband in the Driftless area. When she’s not writing, she enjoys quilting, watercolor painting, camping, gardening, hiking, and sitting around campfires with her four children and eight grandchildren.

Sue’s books include:
Jim Higgins Driftless Mystery Novels
1. Driftless Gold (2022)
2. Driftless Treasure (2022)
3. Driftless Deceit (2022)
4. Driftless Desperation (2023)
5. Driftless Insurrection (April 2024)

Solid Roots and Strong Wings, A Memoir of Family Life in Wisconsin (2011)
The Warning (2002)

Her fifth book in the Driftless Mystery Series promises a little of everything: a tie to local history (think Chief Blackhawk), a couple of murders, some axe throwing, a quick-thinking detective team led by Lt. Jim Higgins, and a few moments of romance.

Immediately afterwards, from 2-4 p.m., at the Gays Mills Public Library, join local author Len Harris as he reads from his newest book “Yesterday and Tomorrow.”

Len was raised in Gays Mills 33 steps from the Kickapoo River. He has fished the streams and rivers of the Driftless for over half a century. He is married and has one daughter.

Len has written three books: “The Stream of Time”, “Brigadoon Creek’ and now “Yesterday and Tomorrow”.  Len’s third book is filled with “fishing stories with life sprinkled in.” Many fishing tips are also interwoven in his stories.

Len was a fishing guide for five years. Len writes for several local newspapers and has been a regular contributor to the Crawford County Independent and Kickapoo Scout for decades. He has been a staff writer/photographer for Midwest Outdoors Magazine for 14 years.  His stories have appeared in many magazines. A couple worthy of note are American Angler Magazine, Our Wisconsin Magazine, Midwest Fly-fishing Magazine, Field and Stream.

Please join the Gays Mills Public Library and Connect Communities Gays Mills in making these authors feel welcome. Books will be available for sale at each event.
