Artist Reception for Local Author Nancy Huesenga, celebrating her new book ‘Behind the Door Marked “Private”

Lanesboro Arts Center will host an artist reception on Saturday, Sept. 14 from 6-8 p.m. for local author Nancy Huisenga, celebrating her new book ‘Behind the Door Marked “Private” – Confessions of a Small Town Bed & Breakfast Owner.’ The reception will feature items from the Habberstad House B&B’s breakfast menu, featured in the book. Free to the public, this is a good opportunity to meet Nancy and hear her animate stories from the new book. A SEMAC McKnight Showcase event of Lanesboro Arts Center, the reception is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.

In 2000, Nancy Huisenga and her husband Dave left professional careers and a metropolitan area for the small town of Lanesboro, Minn. for a ‘retirement’ that has been anything but that...Nancy has been a professional actor, a nurse, a medical researcher, and now a B&B owner. Finally, in 2012, she took time to put onto paper the book that had been writing itself inside her head: ‘Behind the Door Marked “Private” – Confessions of a Small Town Bed & Breakfast Owner.’ “Writing has always been a creative outlet for me,” she says, “And this particular book allowed me to share my experience in a very personal way with those who are willing to open themselves up to it. In the past I haven’t really shared what I’ve written with too many people. It’s always been too private, too personal. Often it’s poetry meant only for close family and friends, words that express my absolute joy or grief. This book is a doorway to my heart.” For those who know Nancy, or who have seen her onstage at the Commonweal Theater Company or with Lanesboro Community Theater, it is no surprise that she has the energy and vivaciousness and creativity to publish a book. In fact, this is her second book; the first was a children’s book published in 2012, ‘Does A Zebra Know It’s Striped?’ Nancy’s sense of humor comes through in her writing. One ‘Confession’ she makes in the new book is about the time a young boy asked innocently what will be served for breakfast in the morning. “My true feelings came out when I reflexively answered, ‘Poison!’, much to his mother’s horror,” she says.

Living in the small town of Lanesboro has absolutely affected Nancy’s artistic ventures. Nancy explains: “Lanesboro is a canvas .....
