Nancy Dane has recently become a quite popular icon of the Arkansas River Valley. She is author and lecturer with an expertise on the American Civil War in Arkansas.
Dane’s “Tattered Glory Series” won the 2011 Fiction Award presented by the Arkansas Library Association, and the second book in the four novel series, A Difference of Opinion, was nominated in 2009 for the prestigious Michael Shaara Award presented for the best Civil War fiction.
Although Dane’s novels are primarily written for adults, she has recently announced the release of her first children’s book… “Sarah Campbell, Tale of a Civil War Orphan”. The historical fiction, target age 5th, 6th, and 7th grade, is based on true historical events in Civil War Arkansas.
A premier book signing party has been scheduled to be held “indoors” at the Bacchus Family Adventure Farm located in the Hagarville community of Northwest Johnson County this Saturday morning, November 15th from 9:30am-11:30am. The event will feature Civil War reenactors, live music, the farm’s exotic animals, and a short presentation on the war in this area by Dane.
Admission is free and signed copies of the new book will be on sale for $10.
