To Learn and to Share

One benefit of talking with folks about Wisconsin’s subterranean spaces is learning about spaces I wished I’d put in the book–like the cave containing a former tavern in the vicinity of Mirror Lake State Park or the tunnel in downtown Eau Claire.

And now I’ve read on a Minnesota caving page more about several sandstone spring caves on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi River. Each new lead is a new opportunity to explore and learn more about Badger State geology and history.

Hope to share what I learn at future book presentations and interviews, including an upcoming appearance on All About Living with Carol Koby radio show. Taping for the radio show is set for April 18, with the show broadcast on a Saturday morning, from 10 to 11 a.m., on HANK 1550 AM and 97.7 FM , as well as available as a podcast.

Rescheduled: ‘Wisconsin Underground’ on ‘Larry Meiller Show’

Larry Meiller will chat with me and radio listeners about my book, Wisconsin Underground: A Guide to Caves, Mines, and Tunnels In and Around the Badger State on Wednesday, March 27, from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Originally scheduled for February 27, the show was preempted by the Congressional Cohen hearing that day.

I’m looking forward to hearing the questions and comments from people all around the state. And looking forward to learning about new underground sites and issues!

Author Event at Racine Public Library

The Racine Public Library, 75 Seventh St., will host an event, “Meet Wisconsin Author: Doris Green” on Saturday, November 3, beginning at 1 p.m. in the Adult Services-East Windows area. Learn the story behind Elsie’s Story: Chasing a Family Mystery and how my Aunt Elsie Green Woodson’s death in a northern Wisconsin tavern haunted me for decades. Learn how this quest turned into an obsession that led to secrets, surprises, and, finally, a solution.

Come, too, to share your own family mysteries, and for a heads-up on my newest book, a second edition of Wisconsin Underground: A Guide to Caves, Mines, and Tunnels In and Around the Badger State.
