From picture books to young adult novels, Mary Casanova’s books depict vivid settings - some set in Voyageurs and others in the north woods. Join Mary at the Rainy Lake Visitor Center for a writing workshop focused on capturing the natural world and creating memorable settings in any genre.

Mary will be available for book signing following the workshop. Selected titles of Mary’s books are available for purchase from Jefferson National Parks Association’s bookstore, or you can bring copies you already own.

Meet at the Rainy Lake Visitor Center on Sunday, January 23, 2011. The program runs from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

This program is sponsored by Voyageurs National Park Association. No fee or registration is required to attend.

Visitors are encouraged to come early to browse through the museum, check out the winter displays in the interactive area, and go snowshoeing or skiing.

Your choice in fishing tackle can have an effect on park wildlife. It takes only one lead sinker to kill a loon. Non-lead alternatives are available in local stores and at Voyageurs National Park visitor centers.
