Odd Wisconsin: True Tales and Folklore from the Badger State

Where: 
Deerfield Public Library

Join us for an illustrated talk on “Odd Wisconsin: True Tales and Folklore from the Badger State" by author Michael Edmonds. He’ll share sketches of some of the strange people who lived here before us and tell authentic stories about folk characters like the lumberjack hero Paul Bunyan. Along the way he'll explain why the Wisconsin Historical Society wanted to publish brief lives of obscure eccentrics and discuss how researching and sharing history has turned upside-down in recent years.
