Children’s author Margi Preus will be the featured guest for Saturday’s BookEnds Online Edition.

The interview will be recorded on ZOOM and will then be available on website www.WadenaCountyHistory.org

Preus’ book, “Village of Scoundrels,” is based on the true story of the French villagers in WWII who saved thousands of Jews. Forging documents, smuggling people over the border, carrying messages for the French Resistance — the teenagers of Les Lauzes found ways of helping the refugees in their midst.

Preus is the author of the Newberry Honor book, “Heart of a Samurai” and other books for young readers including the Minnesota Book Award winning, “West of the Moon” and the Midwest Booksellers Choice Award book “The Clue in the Trees,” part of the Enchantment Lake mystery series.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
