‘Farm Girls’ to present at The Center’s March Dinner
Candace Simar and Angela F. Foster, co-authors of “Farm Girls,” will be the featured speakers Monday at The Center’s monthly dinner, where they will serve a roast beef dinner at 5 p.m. with the program following.

“Farm Girls,” published in January by RiverPlace Press, is a book of stories and reflections of sisters growing up on a family farm.
“If you learned to swear in Norwegian or shared a two-holer outhouse with your cousin, you’ll enjoy the poetry and prose of these sisters. From memories of Norwegian ancestors and growing up on a Minnesota dairy farm to dreams of Oprah’s couch and rapping with Eminem, ‘Farm Girls’ will take you back to the days of rural schools, moon light, star light, hope to see a ghost tonight and the auction of the family farm.”
Simar, a writer and poet from Pequot Lakes, carries a passion for Minnesota history and her Scandinavian heritage. She is the author of the Abercrombie Trail series novels, including “Birdie,” winner of the 2012 Western Writers of America Spur Award. Foster, a poet and memoirist of Pine City, teaches creative writing at The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis and is a freelance editor. Signed copies of the books will be available for sale before the dinner and after the presentation.
