Author visits scheduled at Wega library
Several authors will visit the Weyauwega Public Library during the next month.
The first will be local author Pat Schmatz, who will read from her book Bluefish at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 27. A question and answer session will follow.
All ages are invited, and books will be available for purchase, courtesy of Dragonwings Bookstore, of Waupaca.
Then, at 11 a.m. Thursday, April 12, Michigan-based author Bill Jamerson will present a music and storytelling program about the Civilian Conservation Corps.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt created that federal program during the Great Depression.
Enrollees were paid $1 a day with $25 sent home to families each month. The money kept many families from starving.
The program is free and open to the public.
The third author, who will be visiting the library, is Autumn Acres, author of Yes, a Pig Lives at Our House.
At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 19, she will discuss life with her pot belly pig, Cheyenne.
The free program is for all ages, and Cheyenne will be there, too.
