Attendance at the October 12 meeting of UNAC (Up North Authors Circle) was smaller than the past few months, but this allowedeveryone attending to participate.The meeting began as Leone Kaylor shared a highly complimentary newspaper review of her father’s book she published under thetitle of Life Before Eighty. Dave Wood, who writes a book column for the Red Wing Minnesota Republican Eagle, wrote thelengthy evaluation of Leone’s father’s book for its September 30 issue. Getting any review is a challenge, but to have such a positivearticle in such a newspaper is really a feather in Leone’s cap.Shari Passelt followed Leone by delighting members with a children’s Christmas book she is writing called Santa’s Raingear. Thebook is done in wonderful rhyming couplets reminiscent of Twas the Night Before Christmas, but with an inspirational twist. Shariuses her creativity to interweave the popular story of Santa’s Christmas Eve visit with the equally beloved Biblical story relating thereason for the season: the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. Everyone loved it.Zach Mason then changed the group’s focus as he read a short story he has entitled Contagion. The hero of Zach’s creative fictional piece is a teacher named Miss Meek who lives in Antigo. Miss Meek has gotten in-volved in the community’s emotional reaction to the death of a student reportedly involved in a coven. MissMeek, who is NOT a witch, saves the day by using Christian symbols, songs, and prayers to fight off satanicevil infecting the city. Everyone agreed Zach has crafted an exciting and compelling tale.Next up was poet Dorothy Devolt. Dorothy read a few more stanzas of the poem she is working on called “UpNorth Authors Circle.” However, she blew away the group by then reciting from memory her newest inspira-tional poem about a visit from an angel who brings Dorothy peace of mind and celestial joy.Tom Thielke ended the meeting by displaying some artifacts about the Suring area he has gathered for Rhoda Ebersole, a formerresident now living in Las Vegas who is writing a history of Suring. Tom then read a wonderful poem by Townsend resident Dick Lowery. Entitled “Full Circle,” Dick’s poem is a nostalgic look at over four decades of life and change in the Lakewood area. Dick composed his poem for and read it at the Lakewood reunion held last September.UNAC will meet again on Wednesday, November 9 at 5:00 at the Lakewood Library. New members are always welcome.
