HPPR Radio Readers Book Club Contributor

Julie Stielstra occupies an old farmhouse on seven acres, four miles from the geometric center of Kansas with partner Forest, six cats, two dogs, and a whole lot of visiting birds. She is the author of the award-winning youth novel Opulence, Kansas (Meadowlark Press), and over three dozen published short stories and essays.

  • Hello, High Plains Radio Readers! My name is Julie Stielstra, and I now (finally!) live in Ellinwood, Kansas. I’m a librarian, a reader, and also the author of the novel Opulence, Kansas. You could call it a youth novel, or a young adult novel, because the main character – the daughter of a high-flying Chicago financier – is a teenager.
