    Reading, Conversation and Activities with author Laura Anne Bird
    1 –  2:30pm

    317 Steele Street Algoma, WI

    Author Laura Bird at Yardstick Books in Algoma, WIJoin Yardstick Books in celebrating Kewaunee County Youth Art Month with special guest, author Laura Anne Bird.

    This free event for middle grade students (ages 8-14) will feature a reading, conversation and activities relating to the book, CROSSING THE PRESSURE LINE.  Each participant will receive a free copy of the book and a snack.  Attendance is limited to 15 students and each should submit an RSVP.

    CROSSING THE PRESSURE LINE by debut author Laura Anne Bird, is a contemporary middle grade novel. In it, twelve-year-old Clare Burch has just lost the person she loves most in the world—and now she’s embarking on an unexpected summerlong journey from her home in Chicago to the Northwoods of Wisconsin. With nature as a dazzling backdrop, Clare must honor Grandpa Anthony’s last wishes while working through her feelings of grief and self-blame over his death.

    The story takes place in the fictional Alwyn, which is loosely based on real-life towns such as Boulder Junction and Minocqua, Wisconsin. Alwyn has all the lush, green beauty of the Northwoods, along with river otters, bears, snapping turtles, and eagles. The book encourages readers to keep their eyes, ears, and noses wide open so they don’t miss a thing. Bird explains, “My novel is about loving the outdoors and wildlife.  It’s about cultivating a sense of wonder and reverence for the natural world, which I believe is essential in these times of cell phones, social media, and virtual everything.”

    CROSSING THE PRESSURE LINE is about how we cope with loss and grief. It’s also about feeling strong and confident in one’s body, which is critically important during the often-volatile pre-pubescent years of a girl’s life. Notably, the book features non-traditional families and diverse characters, including internationally adopted children and same-sex couples. The author’s hope is that every child who reads CROSSING THE PRESSURE LINE can see themselves reflected in some way.

    A Wisconsin native, Laura grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in English. After writing for various Wisconsin nonprofit organizations for more than twenty years, she made the leap to writing fiction.

    Laura lives in Madison with her husband, three teenagers, and rescue dog. When she’s not reading her way through a tall stack of library books, she loves to explore the outdoors, particularly in the Driftless Area and in northern Wisconsin.  Laura got the idea for Crossing the Pressure Line when her three teenagers were babies, and she developed the plot and characters over many years of folding laundry and carpooling kids around town. She’s currently working on her second novel, which will be a companion book to CROSSING THE PRESSURE LINE.
