Garnavillo resident and 2008 graduate of Clayton Ridge High School Elizabeth (Bergan) Nazarchyk is the author of a recently published children’s book called Town of McLee

While Nazarchyk hasn’t formally studied writing, she says she began writing books with her mother at a young age. “It was always just kind of a fun thing we did,” Nazarchyk laughs. “She began writing books for me because I always loved being read to and being the star of the story. After that I started writing books and reading them to her – it’s been an ongoing thing.”
