Badger Boneyards Reading and Annual Drawing 8/15, 7PM Reiter Center! Wisconsin journalist and author Dennis McCann has spent his life fascinated with what is hidden in the hidden corners and buried dark (literally) underground in his home state.
At this event, he will dig up some of Wisconsin's unique stories that don't end with when the casket is closed or the earth is piled up. Following the clues in tips from readers, unusual epitaphs, and well-worn stones, Dennis McCann finds the melancholy, the humorous, the tragic, and the universal in Wisconsin's cities of the dead.
A Book Signing and the Historical Society's annual raffle drawing will follow the presentation.
