When June Melby was ten, her parents decided to buy Tom Thumb mini golf course in the small Wisconsin town where they vacationed. In sharp, funny prose, we are treated to sweet nostalgic scenes of summer by the lake, the specific challenges of a family-run mini golf course, as well as the tension, hilarity, confusion and ultimately the triumph and love of her quirky family's summer venture.
June Melby's work has appeared in McSweeney’s, LA Weekly, and National Lampoon Magazine, among other places. In 2011 she was a Writing Fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and in 2003 received the International Artist Award and residency from the City of Hamburg Kulturbehorde (Cultural Affairs Department). In 2002 she was the winner of the Children’s Poetry Award at the Edinburgh International Poetry Festival. She lives in Decorah, Iowa.
We will be giving away gift cards to Storms Golf here in Oconomowoc for a few lucky folks who come to our event with June Melby.
A HUGE thanks to Storms for their generous gift and support!
