Authors Conversation & Book Signing
LOVE WISCONSIN
Thursday, June 13th   7:00 p.m.
Books & Company  1039 Summit Ave, Oconomowoc

 

Come listen to and celebrate the stories of Wisconsin. We will be having a fascinating discussion with authors Megan Monday and Brijetta Hall Waller as well as featured storyteller Pardeep Singh Kaleka.

Love Wisconsin: Stories From The Place We Call Home is a collection of intimate, first-person narratives from diverse voices across the state of Wisconsin. This hardcover, 170-page, full-color coffee table book pairs beautiful portrait photography with the words of over 80 real-life storytellers. Read one by one, the stories inspire and entertain. Taken as a whole, the voices weave together into a bigger conversation—about what it means to be a Wisconsinite, about what it means to live in community, and about how we can and must connect with each other.

Brijetta Hall Waller and Megan Monday, set out to share real-life, first-person stories that showcase the richness and diversity of our state through their digital storytelling project, Love Wisconsin. The Love Wisconsin book features over 80 of the most compelling stories from their celebrated storytelling work along with beautiful portrait photography.

 

About the Authors: Megan Monday has been writing stories since the time she produced her own kid newspaper and sold it up and down her street. (10 cents a copy! Her grandfather was a newspaperman.) Megan got interested in photography as a teenager, and her combined love of written stories and images followed her to art school, graduate school, and then onto a career as a media producer, teacher, and artist. Her work has screened nationally on PBS and in film festivals. These days, Megan works as an executive producer at Wisconsin Public Television.

Brijetta Hall Waller started editing video stories in high school using two VCRs. She is grateful that technology has evolved, and that the joy of storytelling has remained a constant in her life. She has worked in media and documentary ever since she graduated from film school. Her documentary work has screened at film festivals nationally and internationally, and on PBS. She studied interactive media in graduate school and is passionate about the intersection of media and technology. Brijetta fell in love with a “Wisconsin boy” and moved to Wisconsin in 2007. Working on Love Wisconsin, she cherishes connecting one-on-one with the storytellers, then falling deeply in their stories during edits. Jet lives with her husband, daughter and son in Madison.
