Ten days until “Cheeseheads Read,” our spring fundraiser to be held at the Grand Meridian on May 11 at 6 pm.

Packer legend Chester Marcol and Denis Gullickson, Packer historian, will be there. And we’ll be screening the documentary, Cheeseheads, by John Mitchell at 8 pm.

Suggested donation at the door is $20 per person. You can RSVP here by clicking on this link. The event begins with a reception, light refreshments, and a SILENT AUCTION.

We’ll have a signed copy of Ruta Sepetys’ Salt to the Sea in case you didn’t get a chance to have her sign your copy when she visited last month for Fox Cities Reads. There will also be signed copies of books from some of the authors we plan to bring in for Fox Cities Book Festival 2018 this October. You’ll have to come to the event if you want a sneak peek at some of our featured authors this fall.

Here are a few of the other items to be included in our silent auction:

A one-year family membership to the Paine Art Center and Gardens in Oshkosh

Oil change and tire rotation from Pete’s Auto in Appleton

Basket from Wilmar’s Chocolate in Appleton

Basket from Massage Envy on Calumet in Appleton

Basket from Thomas A. Lyons Fine Books filled with books written by Wisconsin authors

A gift certificate from the Bergstrom Mahler Museum of Glass in Neenah

One free 8-week course at The Mill, a place for writers, in Appleton

Gift cards to Brewed Awakenings and The Book Store.  And so much more!

Items up for auction will include our new “Adopt an Author” program. You can help us bring your favorite writers to the Fox Cities for our fall festival. We hope to see you there!
