Author Colleen Barksdale, a graduate of Milaca High School, visited the Milaca Community Library during story time June 29 to talk with kids and read from her book, “The Little Woods Runner,” inspired by her time outdoors with her granddaughter. Barksdale explained a little bit about how the book came together including illustrations and proofreading plus described some of the book’s woodland characters.
