20 Questions with author Andrea Lochen: Questions 1 & 2

Hello library patrons!

Local author Andrea Lochen will be doing a reading and Q&A session about her new novel The Repeat Year here at the West Allis Public Library on Tuesday, August 13th at 7 PM in the Constitution Room.  In preparation for her visit, Andrea did a little interview with me in order for you dear patrons to get to know her a bit. I will be posting two of her responses each weekday until her visit on the 13th.  So here we go!

20 Questions with Author Andrea Lochen: Questions 1 & 2

Q: 1. What do you do when you are not writing?

A: I teach English at the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha.  In my free time, I love to read, bake, and take my dog for long walks.  I also volunteer as a Big Sister through BBBS of Metropolitan Milwaukee, which is incredibly fun and rewarding. 

Q: 2. If you had to choose one flavor of ice cream to describe your personality, which flavor would it be and why?

A: Hmm….what a philosophical question!  I would have to say mint chocolate chip—two very unique flavors that complement each other surprisingly well.   

We have several copies of Andrea's book here at the library if you would like to prep yourself with questions but get one soon!  They are always flying off the shelves!  Signed copies of the novel will be available for purchase at the reading.
