In partnership with the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC), Write On presents a special program specifically designed for community elders.
Writer-in-residence Angie Stanton will share some of the interesting and surprising facts she discovered while researching her time travel novel, Waking In Time, winner of a 2018 Midwest Book Award. From the Sterling Hall bombing on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus to the cost a pay phone call in the 1930s, to the fashions, cars, and types of employment that evolved over the decades, Angie’s presentation will engage seniors and encourage them to share their memories.
Angie Stanton began her writing journey in 2004 as a hobby, with no inkling that she’d become a published author. She was fortunate to land a four-book deal with HarperTeen, a division of HarperCollins. The book of her heart — and one that she wrote to share the story of her husband’s grandmother — Waking In Time won a Midwest Book Award and was a finalist in the National Readers’ Choice Awards. Her books have been translated into French, German, Spanish and Bulgarian. She holds a degree in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and writers feature articles for BroadwayWorld.com.
