Over the past two decades, the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series has compiled inspirational, true stories from regular people’s lives. The latest edition in the series, Time to Thrive: 101 Inspiring Stories about Growth, Wisdom and Dreams, includes a story by Marsha Warren Mittman about her bold decision to move to Spearfish. Friends and family took bets on how quickly she’d return home to New York City. 17 years later, she’s still in South Dakota.
Originally an editor of an international company’s in-house magazine, she recently returned to writing. Her current projects include More: A Most Extraordinary Journey, a memoir about her worldwide spiritual experiences from the Himalayas in Nepal and Andes in Peru, to the pyramids of Egypt and temples of India, to the mystique of the Far East and Australia.
On Saturday, May 16, she’s signing copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Time to Thrive at Books-A-Million in Rapid City. Marsha Warren Mittman joined Dakota Midday and shared the story of how she came to Spearfish.
