The first weekend in October will soon arrive and that means the arrival of Oktoberfest in Amana, Iowa. If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit the Amana Colonies, there’s time to plan a visit and enjoy the Oktoberfest activities. As many of you know, I’ve written six books and a novella, all set in the Amana Colonies. I’ve visited many times and always learn something new. I’ll be signing books along with Lorna Seilstad at the General Store on Saturday, October 3rd from 11:00 to 4:00 and on Sunday October 4th from 10:00 until 1:00. We’d love to visit with you, so if you’re in the area, please stop by!
