Book Signing Enlivens Family History in My Hometown

Here is the official news on my book signing in my hometown, Sheboygan, Wisconsin. I am delighted to return there after five years.

NEWS--A book signing event for Value Meals on the Volga will be held on Friday, April 20 at 4 p.m. at Book World. Value Meals on the Volga traces Bartkowski’s heritage to the founding fathers of the German-Russian village of Mariental, Russia on the Volga River. By sharing original family recipes passed from generations dating back to the 1700’s, Bartkowski helps you to enjoy the food your grandmother used to make and ensures family stories live forever in the hearts of loved ones.“

"Unless we take the time now to share these recipes and stories, our German-Russian family histories will be lost forever.” said Bartkowski.

Book World is located at 537 S. Taylor Drive in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. For additional information, contact Book World at 920-694-0011 or email

Special Thanks to T'Z Marketplace

Tonya Grubb, the fabulous and eclectic owner of T'Z Marketplace in downtown Chandler, has graciously offered to sell my book in her enchanting store. How thrilling to have a food service expert recognize the history and family appeal of the recipes offered in my book.

Tonya offers an array of enticing foods including wine, cheese and relishes from around the world. I am delighted to be a very small part of her store. Check out the wine tastings at T'Z and you will be back for more.
