Though current circumstances have put a temporary halt to in-person author events, it’s opened up a new world of opportunity for authors and readers to connect. Virtual events, once quite rare, are now being utilized as an effective, affordable, and widely accessible outlet for bookstores, libraries, and museums to engage patrons while maintaining safe social guidelines. While nothing can replace in-person events, it remains important to make adjustments to satisfy the needs of businesses, authors, and readers alike. As we all adjust to our new circumstances, author Colin Mustful is adjusting, too!
Mustful is proud to announce that he has teamed up with The Octagon House Museum in Hudson, Wisconsin, to present a virtual lecture and reading. The author of several historical novels, Mustful will be talking about the historical event that inspired his most recent novel, “Resisting Removal”. Known as the Sandy Lake Tragedy, this relatively unknown event left 400 Ojibwe dead in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin because of the negligence and ill-intents of U.S. government officials. The presentation will include a PowerPoint guided lecture, a reading from Mustful’s novel “Resisting Removal”, and a Q&A with the audience.
To support local museums and historical societies during these difficult times, Mustful will be donating the proceeds of all book sales purchased through his online store to the Octagon House Museum. The author’s online store is found at https://colin-mustful.square.site/ .
