Author Doris Stengel will sign copies of her book "Arrival and Departure" (RiverPlace Press, 2014) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, at Turtle Town Books and Gifts in Nisswa.
This collection of poetry takes the reader to distant times and places and returns them with a renewed heart. The poems are inspiring, haunting, joyful and whimsical.
Stengel, a retired Brainerd schoolteacher, is a former president of the League of Minnesota Poets and the National Federation of state Poetry Societies. Her chapbook "Small Town Lines," was published by Finishing Line Press, Georgetown, Kentucky, in July 2012.
