Heather Kirk, author of two Napoleon novels for teens will be offering a one-day seminar on writing for children on Saturday May 29, 2010 on the Barrie campus of Georgian College. Recently Heather's YA novel, "Warsaw Spring", set mainly in Poland in 1979, received an endorsement from a distinguished professor of East European and Russian history. Professor Anna M. Cienciala of the University of Kansas wrote: "I liked it very much and I think the italicized thoughts of Eva are a great plus. They explain without being preachy. The drabness of Warsaw at that time is well rendered and Hanna is very intriguing."
