Join us on Saturday, September 20 at 2:00 p.m. at Central Library as we honor the latest authors added to the Wisconsin Writers Wall of Fame. The wall, located in Central Library, was created in 1997 as a way of honoring authors – novelists, poets, journalists, playwrights, historians – whose work has been influenced by their life and experience in Wisconsin. This year's honorees are A. Manette Ansay and Margot Peters.
A. Manette Ansay
Ansay was raised in Port Washington and studied at the University of Wisconsin. Her novels Vinegar Hill (an Oprah Book Club Selection), Midnight Champagne, Sister, River Angel, Blue Water, and short story collection, Read This and Tell Me What It Says, are all set in rural Wisconsin. She is also the author of Limbo, a memoir relating her struggle with the debilitating disease that changed the course of her life.
Born in Wausau and educated at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Peters is the author of noted biographies Design for Living, a biography of Lunt and Fontanne, the Charlotte Bronte biography Unquiet Soul, as well as books on Mrs. Patrick Campbell, the Barrymores, and May Sarton.
