On behalf of the planning committee (University of Minnesota Press, Valley Bookseller, Stillwater Continuing Education, and The Partnership Plan), we are sorry that we cannot properly celebrate Jessie's debut as an author and hear her in conversation with co-writer Todd Smith. Below is a message from Jessie that she wanted us to share with all of you:

To everyone who reserved a ticket and is excited about Brave Enough…thank you so much. I’m so sorry that I will not be able to meet you all, personally sign your book, and answer your questions. I was looking forward to all the hugs and high-fives, which will of course have to wait until a later date!

We are working on alternative options, and I just wanted to let you know that I greatly appreciate your enthusiasm for the book! It means the world to me. Stay safe and healthy this spring, and keep finding ways both big and small to be Brave Enough. —Jessie”

We are working hard behind the scenes on the possibility of reimagining this event and what form it might take. We will of course update you should we be able to pull something together. In the meantime, grab a copy of Brave Enough and stay safe.

This event is part of ArtReach St. Croix’s NEA Big Read in the St. Croix Valley. NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. Thank you to those who made donations to ArtReach’s literary arts programs and the charities dear to Jessie’s heart including WithAll Foundation and Protect Our Winters. This event was co-sponsored by ArtReach St. Croix, University of Minnesota Press, Valley Bookseller, and The Partnership Plan, Stillwater Community Education.

People who pre-registered for the free tickets have been notified of the cancelation via email.
