POWNAL, Vt. -- The Solomon Wright Public Library will host a presentation by Vermont author Natalie Kinsey-Warnock on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m.
Kinsey-Warnock, the author of recently published "True Colors" lives on a 200-year-old family farm in the Northeast Kingdom, the home of her Scottish immigrant ancestors.
This farm and the Vermont hills, her rescued animals, family life and lore, her hobbies, genealogy/Civil War history research, athletic endeavors, bagpipes/fiddle, bird carving, and quilting all influence and inspire her writing for young readers.
Kinsey-Warnock, in addition to her many book projects and conducting writing/reading school workshops and her aforementioned interests, is developing a new history curriculum based on students finding their own true family stories. Students learn to use genealogy research methods, document with photos, and how to listen to stories within their own families.
The presentation will also include a look at life on the Kinsey-Warnock home farm and quilts inspired by her grandmother's stories, including the "Canada Geese" quilt, which was the subject of an award-winning book honoring her grandmother.
