Katie Funk Wiebe, professor emeritus of Tabor College, inherited her love of family history from her German-Russian immigrant parents. She passes that love on to others through her books and by teaching classes on writing family history at Wichita-based LifeVentures, as well as doing other regional workshops, and appearing as a popular speaker for many community organizations and clubs. Recently she presented a workshop at the Kansas Authors Club's 2013 annual convention in Wichita.
Described as being the “Gold Standard” author in family history, Katie’s most recent books are How to Write Your Personal or Family History — If You Don’t Do It, Who Will? (Good Books) and You Never Gave Me a Name (Cascadia). An early book is Good Times with Old Times: How to Write Your Memoirs. Katie inspires her audience to get started by “digging into the soil of the past,” organizing the findings and then keeping the momentum going.
Sponsored by Kansas Authors Club, the workshop is open to members and non-members. If you have any questions, please call Cindi Kerr at 620-947-0191 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
