Author Jenny Panther Braulick will be reading from her book, Kristie and the Secret of Yesterday.
Jenny Panther Braulick chose her birthplace as the setting for her first children’s book, Kristy and the Secret of Yesterday Farm. It draws its inspiration from her happy childhood memories of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and the town’s annual Old Threshers Reunion.
At age 16, Jenny moved with her family to Texas. She graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.
She also holds a master of education degree in Elementary Education with a Reading Specialization from the University of North Texas. She has served as a teacher and school administrator for more than 10 years.
Jenny’s desire to write was sparked by a love of children’s literature. She was also prompted by her wish to instill in younger generations the joy of reading and an awareness of self-worth and strong family values.
Her own values come from the positive support she has experienced as a member of a close-knit family, which now includes her husband and three children.
