On Sunday, March 30 at 2 pm we get a behind the scenes look at photographing the history of Menomonie. Menomonie author and photographer David Tank presents a program based on his popular Postcards from the Past in the Dunn County News. He’ll show the images he’s taken and talk about what is involved in capturing these then-now photos. Participants are invited to bring old postcards from the area that might be candidates for future then-now photo shoots.
On Sunday, April 6 at 1:30 pm author Frederick Blanch reveals the life of a Depression-era boy growing up in America’s heartland as he talks about this latest book Last Words . He was a child during the Great Depression in a tiny Minnesota farming community, and his working life has included stints as a printer, actor, beekeeper, television producer and photographer. A dictionary to the soul, Blanch takes you on a reminiscent tour of life with the gentleness of humor of a Dave Barry mixed in with some Will Rogers. Think of a simpler time, and smile. Last Words was nominated for the prestigious Minnesota Book Awards.
