Lisa Trimble Actor Visits - Speaks About Her Children's Novel "Rebel Raiders"

Jackson was a whirlwind stop for children’s book author Lisa Trimble Actor July 16-17 just as it was for her novel’s antagonist Gen. John Hunt Morgan in 1863. The author scheduled a Midwest book tour, promoting her book Rebel Raiders to culminate in Jackson on the exact 150th anniversary of Morgan’s arrival in Jackson County.

Actor led a crowd of nearly 70 people at the Lillian E. Jones Museum on the evening of July 16 to close their eyes and imagine what it must have been like 150 years ago to be an 11-year-old girl with a mother sick with diphtheria and 52 enemy soldiers surrounding the family farm house in Jackson County. Then she asked the audience to imagine the courage it took to broker a deal with the soldiers for protection of the family farm in exchange for breakfast for the hungry soldiers. Those are the situations portrayed in Actor’s children’s historical fiction novel, Rebel Raiders, based in Jackson County.

The novel Rebel Raiders was originally a story Actor had heard for years, passed down on her father’s side of the family. At the Jones Museum, Actor explained 17 years of the twists and turns that the story went through to become first a picture book, then develop into a children’s novel.

In 2007, Actor made her first visit to Jackson with her parents to research the setting for the family tale. She will return to Jackson for a third time August 16-18 to be a part of the Morgan’s Raid re-enactment and Civil War encampment, sponsored by the Jackson Historical Society. Actor is the associate vice-president of advance for Westminster College in Utah and a Park City, Utah resident.

Rebel Raiders is a historical fiction novel geared toward readers in grades 3 to 5 and has been included in the Civil War history curriculum of fourth-grade teachers in Indiana. The book is for sale locally at Hatch, a children’s boutique and The Shop, which are both stores on Broadway St. in Jackson and is available on Amazon.

Hi. I see that you don't update your site too often. I know that writing content is boring and time consuming.
But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new articles
using existing content (from article directories or other websites from your niche)?
And it does it very well. The new posts are high quality and pass the copyscape test.
You should try miftolo's tools

Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting
sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers
and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
a good platform.
