Deeanne Gist's 1893 Chicago World's Fair Chat Party

This video was live on May 22nd. The gifts/prizes that Deeanne talks about are no longer going. I wanted to show this video because she really digs deep into the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and shows a lot of very interesting pictures taken there. She also does a trivia game during this video, so if you have read the book go ahead and do the trivia game and see what you know/remember:) Have fun;)

Deeanne Gist:

After a short career in elementary education, Deeanne Gist retired to raise her four children. Over the course of the next fifteen years, she ran a home accessory and antique business, became a member of the press, wrote freelance journalism for national publications such as People, Parents, Parenting, Family Fun, Houston Chronicle and Orlando Sentinel, and acted as CFO for her husband’s small engineering firm--all from the comforts of home.
Squeezed betwixt-and-between all this, she read romance novels by the truckload and even wrote a couple of her own. While those unpublished manuscripts rested on the shelf, she founded a publishing corporation for the purpose of developing, producing and marketing products that would reinforce family values, teach children responsibility and provide character building activities.
After a few short months of running her publishing company, Gist quickly discovered being a "corporate executive" was not where her gifts and talents lie. In answer to Gist’s fervent prayers, God sent a mainstream publisher to her door who licensed her parenting I Did It!® product line and committed to publish the next generation of her system, thus freeing Gist to return to her writing.
Eight months later, she sold A Bride Most Begrudging to Bethany House Publishers. Since that debut, her very original, very fun novels have rocketed up the bestseller lists and captured readers everywhere. Add to this two consecutive Christy Awards, four RITA nominations, rave reviews, and a growing loyal fan base, and you've got one recipe for success.
