Upcoming Events

  • June 8-10 Cedar Falls Christian Writers Workshop: Mary Potter Kenyon will conduct an intensive workshop on how to write a book proposal and one on how to utilize expressive writing for healing as well as how to get it published.
  • Wednesday, June 14, Ruth Suckow Memorial Library, Earlville, Iowa, 6:30 pm. Living a Legacy of Creativity, with author Mary Potter Kenyon. Growing up, little Mary Potter frequented the stacks of the Earlville library, with the goal of reading every single book on the shelves. By the time she began working there as a teen, she’d come close. With parents who encouraged book-reading, and a mother who demonstrated uncommon creativity in her everyday life, Mary dreamed of becoming a writer and librarian someday. Now, she is both. Potter Kenyon will encourage, inspire, and entertain with a power point presentation on how a legacy of creativity fed a dream that would result in hundreds of published pieces in newspapers, magazines, anthologies, and five traditionally published books, including the award-winning “Refined By Fire: A Journey of Grief and Grace.”
