Author, musician, columnist Jessie Veeder to participate in live blog with Herald Wednesday, Jan. 26
Event to be held in conjunction with a Herald special presentation that highlights Veeder's music and shows performances of "Work" and "Nothing's Forever."
GRAND FORKS — Jessie Veeder, a musician, author and columnist, will participate in a live blog event Jan. 26 on the Grand Forks Herald's website.
The event will be held in conjunction with the online publication of a special presentation by the Herald that features two songs by Veeder. The presentation is available only to Forum Communications Co. and Grand Forks Herald members/subscribers.
During the live blog, Veeder will be available to interact with readers and viewers, who are encouraged to write questions or comments. The blog will start at 2 p.m. (central) Wednesday and run for about a half an hour. Questions can be sent to the Herald during the event, or anytime before the event.
To view the live blog, visit the Herald's website on Wednesday — a link will be available on the site shortly before the discussion begins. Readers can participate by submitting questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Readers also can submit questions during the event.
To Forum Communications Co. readers, Veeder may be best known as the writer of a weekly column, titled "Coming Home." Perhaps not as widely known is her life as a musician who travels the region and who was influenced by her family's music background.
During the Herald's special online presentation — a 20-minute video that highlights Veeder's music and other topics — she performs her songs "Work" and "Nothing's Forever." The presentation will be published on the Herald's website Wednesday morning; the interactive blog will go live at 2 p.m.
In addition to her music and weekly column, Veeder also is a budding author. Her new book, "Prairie Princess," is now on sale throughout the region.
