FOND DU LAC PUBLIC LIBRARY
32 Sheboygan St, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin 54935
Ann Peters will be the featured speaker at the Friends of the Fond du Lac Public Library Annual Meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, in the McLane Room of the downtown Main Library. The meeting is free and open to the public; refreshments will be served. No registration is required.
In “House Hold,” Peters revisits the modern split-level where she grew up, remembering her family, friends and neighbors, including Dr. Fuller McBride and Ann Hanson, among others. She charts her personal story through two decades of New York City apartments, before traveling to a cabin in the mountains of Colorado and finally purchasing an old farmhouse in upstate New York.
According to reviewer Alice Kaplan of Yale University, the book “has the makings of an American classic: a perceptive and deeply affecting book about belonging to a place and yet never quite belonging.”
After a discussion and reading, Peters will sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase.
The Friends’ Annual Meeting is held to celebrate National Library week – April 13-19 – a decades-old observance sponsored by the American Library Association to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers. The Friends organization is a non-profit that promotes and encourages the use of library services by fundraising, supporting special events such as Fond du Lac Reads and providing programs for the community.
