Christina Baker Kline Brings Orphan Train to Fox Cities Book Festival

The Fox Cities Book Festival, an annual event dedicated to bringing writers and readers together, was a huge success this past week in Fox Cities, Wisconsin. The 8th annual festival coincided with National Poetry Month and National Library week and was celebrated with the help of many accomplished authors and their biggest fans.

Among the immensely talented writers at the festival was Christina Baker Kline, author of “Orphan Train”, a NYT bestseller. Though fictional, her novel explores the very real history of orphaned children that were sent to the Midwest as laborers at the turn of the century.

Kline took part in the “Fox Cities Reads” author presentation, Q&A sessions, and meet the author events. An exciting aspect of the festival was being able to interact with her fans and hearing stories of the inspiration to dig into their own “Orphan Train” histories.

Ms. Kline is a powerful speaker and “Orphan Train” continues to garner critical and fan acclaim. To invite Ms. Kline to your next community or campus reads event, or to learn more about her schedule, contact Books In Common.
