Five Authors Having Book Signing in Bremen

by Amy Wenger on June 12, 2014

    Several writers with connections to the Bremen community will be on hand for a book signing, which is being planned for Saturday, June 21 from 2-4 p.m. in front of Custom Framing Solutions, 114 West Plymouth Street in historic downtown Bremen.  If there is inclement weather that afternoon, the event will be moved indoors.

    Among the guests being featured are author and motivational speaker Charlie Adams; teacher and author Keith Board; photographer, businesswoman, and author Tammy Venable; children's book author MD Smith; and newspaper reporter and historical author Amy Wenger.

    Charlie Adams will be presenting copies of his work, "How to Build a Positive Attitude and KEEP the Darn Thing."  The inspirational read is based upon a seminar that Adams has traveled with extensively for the past several years.  His is a recognizable presence from the television news circuit, most notably as the Sports Director for WSBT Channel 22.  Adams is also known as a motivational speaker and a tour host for Edgerton's Travel.

    Keith Board is a longtime teacher of industrial arts at Bremen High School, and will be on hand promoting his upcoming book of artistically significant architecture, "A Walking Tour of Historic Buildings in Bremen, Indiana."  This upcoming publication was made possible with assistance from the students of Bremen High School, as they provided a great deal of the illustrative renderings for the book.  Board will also be championing the efforts of two organizations dedicated to the preservation of local history, the Bremen History Center and the recently restored B & O train depot.

    Tammy Venable is a native of the Bremen area, and is the current owner of Custom Framing Solutions and Unicom Satellite in Bremen.  Widely regarded for her work in various community organizations, Venable is a co-founder of Bremen's online news organization, The People's Paper, of which she is the Sales and Marketing Director.  She will be offering copies of her book, "Bremen and North Central Indiana," which features vintage photography of Bremen and the surrounding region.

    MD Smith is the author of a book entitled "The Adventures of Mr. Cabbit - The Journey to Stony Creek."  She is currently working on another book, “A Dog Named Zee” which is scheduled to go to print later this summer.

    Amy Wenger was raised in Bremen and has been working primarily in the field of local journalism for nearly 30 years, submitting articles of various subject matter for newspapers spanning four Indiana counties.  She now resides in Wakarusa with her husband, Larry, and their three children, Hannah, Rebekah, and Josiah, and is also a co-founder of The People's Paper, serving as the Managing Editor.  Wenger will be bringing one of the three books she has had published on regional history, "Marshall County - A Brief History."
