The Magic Thief by Sarah PrineasFantasy Author Sarah Prineas, who penned the wildly popular Magic Thief and Winterling book series, will talk to kids & teens at the Fairfield Public Library during FAIRfest 2015!

This year's theme? "Every Hero Has a Story." 

Anna-Maria Petricelli and Nynke Passi will both present creativity/writing workshops for adults and older teens at the library as part of FAIRfest also. All three programs are free and open to the public. Check FAIRfest's Writing & the Arts Track site for dates and details.

Carla & Chuck OffenburgerNOT TO BE MISSED!!

A delightful, wide-ranging discussion about life as a storyteller in Iowa, the uniqueness of Fairfield, the state of jourmalism, and much more with Iowa treasure Chuck Offenburger, longtime former columnist for the Des Moines Register. Currently semi-retired, living on a farm he rehabbed in Cooper, Iowa, Chuck's been writing and sharing stories the last 15 years on his own website offenburger.com with wife Carla.

His tribute in honor of the passing of colorful centenarian & Fairfield icon Lee Gobble ["It's g-g-g goodbye: Fairfield memorializes its grandest character"] was a touching, funny, warm-hearted, insightful portrait and a wonderful snapshot of the town whose universities, Parsons and MUM, evolved from "Flunkout U" to "Unusual U".
