Saturday mornings are all about coffee, casual convo and community. Come by the library on the second Saturday of every month for just that.

To kick off Second Saturdays, KimLit's Artist in Residence, Benjamin D. Rinehart will be available for demos and direction on how to create your very own pop-ups! This fun drop-in Second Saturday will focus on a variety of pop-up techniques that may be implemented into books or used alone. Feel free to bring in photocopied images, paper scraps and any embellishments to incorporate into our engineered designs.  No registration required.  All levels and ages welcomed!   

Cribbage boards, puzzles, games will also be out for your enjoyment.  Come enjoy some time with your neighbors!  Click on any of the event images to connect on Facebook and invite more friends!

KimLit's artist in residence program sponsored in part by FOLKS, The Friends of the Little Chute and Kimberly Library System.    See how you get get involved with FOLKS by clicking here.

Laura Vosika is the author of the acclaimed and beloved Blue Bells Chronicles -  a tale of time travel, mysteries and miracles, romance and redemption that ranges from the modern world of American classical music to the medieval battles of Robert the Bruce and James Douglas.


Apart from time travel, Laura is no stranger to the world of the Blue Bells Chronicles. Having grown up in the military, she spent her early years in Europe, visiting castles and ruins, later lived in Ireland, and frequently visits Scotland.


She earned a bachelor’s degree in music at Lawrence University, on trombone – like Shawn in The Chronicles- and spent years as a freelance musician on trombone, harp, and flute.


Other publishing credits include an essay in Glamour Magazine, Food and Feast in the World of the Blue Bells Chronicles: a gastronomic historic poetic musical romp in thyme, and Go Home and Practice, a music record book. Future projects include non-fiction books on raising a large family and The Theology of Music.


She currently lives in Minnesota with several of her nine children, three cats, and an Irish Wolfhound much like the Laird’s great hunting hounds, where she hosts the radio program Books and Brews with Laura Vosika.


Scotland Through the Eyes of the Author

From 2009 to 20016, Laura Vosika, author of the acclaimed time travel series, The Blue Bells Chronicles, a story ranging across modern and medieval Scotland, has made multiple trips to Scotland and northern England to research the locations of her story—the battlefield of Bannockburn, Inverness’s Eden Court, the hills of Monadhliath and Rannoch Moor, Carlisle, the Isle of Arran, the Isle of Iona on the west of Scotland and Lindisfarne off the east coast of England. She will talk about visiting these locations with an eye to researching the times of Robert the Bruce of Braveheart fame. The presentation includes a medieval weapon and instrument display, a power point slide show with photography of her travels, a medieval piece played on harp, and readings from her books.

Chelsea Bobulski was born in Columbus, Ohio and raised on Disney movies, Broadway musicals, and Buckeye pride. She graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in history, and promptly married her high school sweetheart. As a writer, she has a soft spot for characters with broken pasts, strange talents, and obstacles they must overcome for a brighter future. She now lives in northwest Ohio with her husband, daughter, and one very emotive German Shepherd/Lab mix. THE WOOD is her debut novel.


Presentation Description

“As a child, I fell in love with the unique magic of books, the magic of escape. I’ve wanted to be a writer ever since.” Chelsea will talk about all the twists and turns of her crazy five-year, five-book journey to becoming a published author, and what it has taught her about perseverance and patience. She will also discuss her inspiration for THE WOOD, as well as her process writing it (which was unlike any other book she's ever written!), with a Q&A to follow.
