  • Bagley Public Library 79 Spencer Ave SW Bagley, MN, 56621 United States (map)

FREE and open to the public.

Wendell Affield encourages others to tell their stories. “Our life experience gives us the authority. For many individuals, a common regret near end of life is that their life story will die with them.”

In 2017 Wendell’s first book in the Chickenhouse Chronicles series was published; HERMAN, 1940s Lonely Hearts Search, followed by Pawns (2018). Today, Wendell works on the next book in his series, does public speaking, and Veterans Writing Workshops to promote expressive writing therapy. He speaks to veteran groups about PTSD and facilitates a Veteran’s Writer Group at his local VA Clinic. He is a 2017 recipient of Minnesota Humanities Center “Veteran’s Voices Award” for his work with the underserved in his community.
