Being married means accepting your mate's quirks and odd habits, but for award-winning author Felicia Schneiderhan, it meant giving up life on land for life on a boat. She'll join us at 6 p.m. Sept. 22 to read from her wonderful memoir, Newlyweds Afloat, which chronicles her experiences with goose attacks, sewage situations and subzero temperatures while living on a boat with her new husband in downtown Chicago. Her book will be available to buy and refreshments are provided by the Friends of the Library. Following the reading, she'll teach a memoir-writing workshop at 7 p.m. This workshop is free and appropriate for writers of all levels. To sign up for the workshop, stop by the Circulation Desk, call 715-394-8860 or email email@example.com .
