5/2/2019 7:23:00 AM Library to host author events in May Library to welcome authors Studevant and Roupp this month
Two authors are scheduled to visit the Rhinelander District Library this month for special programs.
At 6 p..m. Monday May 6, Chris Sturdevant, the author of "Cold War Wisconsin" will share the tales of the Badger State's role in this titanic showdown between East and West. "For decades, the state's nuclear missiles pointed to the skies, awaiting Soviet bombers," according to a library press release. "Joseph Stalin's daughter sought refuge in the small town of Richland Center. With violence in Vietnam about to peak, a cargo ship from Kewaunee sparked a new international incident with North Korea. Manitowoc was ground zero for a Sputnik satellite crash, and four ordinary Madison youths landed on the FBI's most wanted list after the Sterling Hall Bombing."
Sturdevant's appearance is part of the Peters Memorial Series, the release notes.
From 10 a.m. to noon May 11, Sue Roupp, UW Writing Institute Lecturer will present "Memoir Writing in Six Easy Steps." If writing a memoir seems overwhelming, this workshop will sort how to begin, who to include, the setting and scenes. Participants will leave full of good skills and energy to write. Space is limited and registration is required.
