Mary Casanova of Ranier, Mn. is an award-winning author of children’s novels and picture books.
Many of her works stem from her life on the Minnesota-Ontario border; yet some of her stories have taken her as far away as France, Norway, and Belize for research.
Whatever the setting for her books, Casanova writes stories that matter—and stories that kids can’t put down.
Her book awards include an American Library Association “Notable,” Aseop Accolades by the American Folklore Society, Parents’ Choice “Gold” Award, Booklist Editor Choice, and two Minnesota Book Awards.
“The greatest reward for me is when a young reader tells me she or he loves one of my books,” said Casanova.
“For me, it’s all about communicating writer-to-reader through a character and story,” she added.
Casanova will be visiting the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre for an author visit today (Aug. 16) at 6 p.m.
All are welcome to attend.
