Doing 'your thing' at 11:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning is definitely not a prime time happening. I was grateful to the people who turned up at the PENDARVIS HISTORIC SITE to hear about my new mystery, THE MYSTERY OF THE POINTING DOG, and very impressed with what they added to the 'event.' There were a few retired teachers who knew things I had not discovered doing extensive research over two years. They were amazing.To be honest, I had not expected anyone to come at such an off time and tried to hide my surprise when the little room filled up. The give and take exchanges with this group of people were truly wonderful. We stayed together until I was bumped by another speaker an hour and a half later. And they bought all the books I had brought with me!
Here are some photos I took with my crummy camera while waiting for the door to be unlocked:
PENDARVIS closes at the end of October. It's a lovely place with costumed guides (presenters) and many of the original stone cottages the Cornish miners built in the mid-1800's can be found on the site as well as throughout Mineral Point. http://pendarvis.wisconsinhistory.org/
