One of the projects that I have been working on at the library is a spreadsheet of all of the Wisconsin authors that we have in our collection. I am marking the physical books with a sticker that says Wisconsin Author. We are by no means representing all of the authors in the world that have a Wisconsin connection, but just that ones that we have in our collection at the Whitefish Bay Public Library. Much of the initial research was done by Samantha Spottek, who was one of our librarians, but has taken another job up north. I have added to her list and verified the residence or connection of these writers to our state. We also have 2 upcoming events featuring Wisconsin authors.

The names above are only a few of the many talented authors that were born in, currently live in, or earned their college degrees in our state. Keep an eye out for the Wisconsin Author sticker the next time that you are browsing the stacks and check out a local writer.
