Monroe-Kane to speak at library April 24
Charles Monroe-Kane will discuss his memoir, "Lithium Jesus" at 6:30 p.m. April 24 at the Rhinelander District Library.
"Born into an eccentric Ohio clan of modern hunter-gatherers, Charles grew up hearing voices in his head," according to a press release announcing the event. "Over a dizzying two decades, he was many things - teenage faith healer, world traveler, smuggler, liberation theologian, ladder-maker, squatter, halibut hanger, grifter, environmental warrior, and circus manager - all the while wrestling with bipolar disorder and self-medication."
Monroe-Kane has won a Peabody Award for his work as a senior producer and interviewer for the program To the Best of Our Knowledge, broadcast on 220 public radio stations. He has reported for National Public Radio's Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
This event, sponsored in part by the Northern Arts Council and hosted by Rhinelander District Library Friends of the Library is recommended for mature audiences only, according to the press release.
For more information, please call the Rhinelander District Library, 715-365-1070, www.rhinelanderlibrary.org.
