Don’t miss the opportunity to meet Marianne Monson, author of the Water is Wide and Enchanted Tunnel Series. Join us in the Lecture Hall at 3:30 p.m. today! Marianne will also be signing books after her presentation.


Shadow Mountain Publishing posted the following about Ms. Monson: Since she was a very young child, Marianne Monson has been fascinated by the power of words (and even tried inventing her own language for a time). After earning a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from BYU, she continued her study at Vermont College of Fine Arts, earning an M.F.A. in Creative Writing. Since then, she has worked as an editor/art director of children’s books, authored eight books and counting for children and adults, and continues editing and writing for a variety of audiences, including magazines, books, blogs, and other publications.

She teaches Creative Writing and English at Portland Community College. Her two children are often featured in her work (and are self-confessed logophiles as well).
Marianne’s newest books – Frontier Grit and Women of the Blue and Gray are historical accounts of women in the 1800’s.
