Local author to speak Thurs.

Published 9:30am Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Susan Joyce, a local author, is the scheduled speaker for the Dorothy Godtland Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Albert Lea Art Center. Joyce will share information about the world of writing, changes within the publishing industry and her journey as a writer. Her lecture is free and open to the public.

Joyce is a native of St. Paul. She is a former commercial artist, journalist, editor and award-winning publisher, as well as an award-wining financial adviser. She has lived in northern Minnesota, southern Minnesota and places in-between for 40 years before she and her husband moved to Albert Lea to retire in 2010. She is currently working on her first novel for publication, a story that encompasses her experience on Wall Street, but is set in Minnesota.

The Dorothy Godtland Lecture Series is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
