April 4: Robin Carmody

Robin, born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, felt a longing for the Black Hills for as long as she can remember. A modern-day kindred spirit of those early pioneers, Robin’s background includes earning a Class A CDL license, a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, and being Chairperson of the Early Childhood Department at Bay State College in Boston.

For many years, she has devoted time to historical research of Wild Bill Hickok, his circle of friends, and the Black Hills area.

Robin is a mother of two fiercely independent, successful adult children and Nana to two beautiful, energetic grandchildren for whom she originally conceived the idea of the “But Nana” books. Her hobbies include knitting, quilting, participating in donation drives, and traveling.

For the Author Talks presentation, Robin will discuss the four books in the “But Nana” children’s book series, and how her research on Wild Bill Hickok began decades ago, bringing her to this point in time.
