Join us at the Mitchell Public Library on Wed., June 26 at 10:30am & 2pm to meet children's author Deb Watley, author of "Summer Ruins: The Field Notes of Gwen Bell." Watley will present the basics of archaeology and will share the inspiration for her main character, Gwen, an 11-year-old who searches for artifacts at her parents' South Dakota dig. "Summer Ruins" takes place near a fictional town in South Dakota, loosely based on the towns of Florence, South Shore, and Castlewood. This is a great opportunity for all ages to learn about SD archaeology and the behind-the-scenes work of an author. Everyone welcome.
