Future Authors at the Festival
LITERARY WINNERS READ THEIR BOOKS AT THE BOOK FESTIVAL
By Pat Brabazon
State winners of the Nettesheim Literary Competition read their books at the historic Sterling North barn on October 27th. This is the third year that young future authors have been included in the festival. This year’s readers were Kate Ricks, Janesville, Ellie Moen, Montfort, Kimberly Beans, Milwaukee, Amanda Billerbeck, Racine and Samantha Holterman, Milton.
Students in grades 3-12 write and illustrate fiction, personal narrative or bilingual Spanish books and submit them to a local chapter of DKG for judging. Local winners are then judged at the state level. This year’s authors were 2018 state winners from grades 3, 4, 8 and 12. The competition is open to students in Wisconsin schools.
