Local author, Tim Pletkovich is coming twice in September:
Tuesday, September 11th at 6:30 pm - Tim will talk about his book, Civil War Fathers Sons of the Civil War in World War II. He gave this talk back in December 2017 and the audience found it very interesting! He is a very good speaker and is well informed on the subject.
Tuesday, September 18th at 6:30 pm - Tim will talk about his second book, Nuns, Nazis, and Notre Dame. He will host a "Jeopardy" style game to talk about the book. You will learn about how the life of U.S. Army Veteran, Gerald A. O'Reilly intersected with Teddy Roosevelt, Jackie Robinson, and William F. Buckley, Junior.
I have read both of these books and enjoyed each one. If you like history with a personal touch, I think you will enjoy these presentations.
On Thursday, September 13th at 6 pm local author, Maureen Brunsdale will be at the library to talk about her book, Bloomington-Normal Circus Legacy. I read her book and found it fascinating to learn more about how important Bloomington-Normal was to so many famous circus performers, especially in the art of the trapeze. Don't you find it interesting that this nearby town has such a colorful heritage!
