Wisdom at An Open Book for meet and greet July 15

An author with local ties will be at An Open Book on Tuesday, July 15 from 4 to 6 p.m. to meet and greet the public. Gail Wisdom has written a children's book entitled "Trouble with Bullies" because of her concern for the ever-increasing problem of bullying, and her husband, Tom, has written the study guide to accompany it. Ms. Wisdom taught elementary school for nearly 30 years, and is a native of North Dakota and a graduate of UND. She now resides in Texas with her husband who is a pastor and also has a degree in counseling.

Ms. Wisdom has also written a prize-winning poem entitled "Terrible Tuesday" which is about a tornado which struck the Texas town in which she now lives. She is going to retitle the poem "Terrible Thursday" to commemorate the 2010 Wadena tornado, and will have copies available to anyone who stops to talk with her and wishes to have one.

Ms. Wisdom is a sister of Marilyn Twete of Wadena.
