… and readers who came to the Verona Public Library on August 8 to hear about Elsie’s Story! Thanks for excellent questions, fruitful comments, and intriguing stories shared. One story always leads to a dozen more, and every family historian seems to have a mystery to solve — from a “disappeared” ancestor to a black sheep to an unexplained death.
Thanks again to Rex Owens for the opportunity to talk about Elsie’s Story: Chasing a Family Mystery on his show, “My World and Welcome to It,” on Sun Prairie Community Radio 103.5 FM The Sun on Tuesday, July 31. The date marked the 58th anniversary of my Aunt Elsie’s mysterious death in a northern Wisconsin tavern–the event that inspired the book and a decades-long quest for answers. Listen to the podcast.
Much appreciation to the Verona Public Library for the opportunity to present “Sharing Family History” on Wednesday, August 8, at 6:30 p.m. I’ll talk about Elsie’s Story: Chasing a Family Mystery, a memoir about the puzzling circumstances surrounding my aunt’s death in a northern Wisconsin tavern a half century ago, and offer ideas for sharing your own family stories. Register online at www.veronapubliclibrary.org or call 845-7180. Or, just come on Wednesday!
