Curiosity Fair and Author Appearances at Conner Prairie June 13

Conner Prairie Interactive History Park is one of my favorite places in the world! Of course, I am biased because I work there, but I still think many of you would enjoy coming out to visit us June 13. We’ll have not only our normal extensive historic grounds open (animals, costumed interpreters, Civil War, spinning, etc), but a science-based Curiosity Fair, with everything from the science of ice cream to 3D printers to bicycles built for 10), and an author event. Fun for the family all day long!

The following authors will be there June 13 to chat and sign books, all with history/local connections:

11a-4p                      Madalyn S. Kinsey                           Book: “The Ghost of Cheeney Creek”

Madalyn S. Kinsey:

Madalyn Kinsey

Madalyn Kinsey was raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, in an extended family of numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. She frequently visited them on the family farm near Fishers, IN, where ghost hunting, exploring abandoned houses, sleeping in the woods, fishing, and other kinds of do-it-yourself fun took place. Her cousins were never at a loss to cook up fun and adventure, much of it centered around investigating the Civil War-era graveyard located only a few yards behind the family home they occupied. This book is a fond memory of those visits, as well as the pop culture of the 1960’s during which the occurred.

She has written articles and poetry for local publications and international periodicals in the museum field. Her dramatic works range from a musical about Susan B. Anthony to fairy tale poetry.

Her 100 youth volunteers are her best consultants in the fields of humor, teenage angst, and spinning wheels (which, they assure her, are not hazardous to anyone but Sleeping Beauty). Her first novel, Waking Beauty, poses the question, “What if Sleeping Beauty refused to wake up?”
