The River's Memory: A reading by Sandra Gail Lambert (Saturday, September 27 at 2pm)
Sandra Gail Lambert's fiction and memoir have appeared in a variety of journals and anthologies including New Letters, The Weekly Rumpus, Arts & Letters and The North American Review. Excerpts of THE RIVER'S MEMORY, her debut novel, have won prizes from Big Fiction Magazine and the Saints and Sinners Short Fiction Contest. She lives in Gainesville, Florida, a home base for kayak trips to her beloved rivers and coastal marshes.

THE RIVER'S MEMORY tells the story of women living along the banks of a river where water billows from caverns of silent lakes.

Among the narrators are two potters separated by centuries, a child of the Florida frontier and a woman born without legs who spends her days swimming with manatees. None of these women are famous. None of them have children. Instead, their stories exist in a mosaic of time and shadowed history, and the things of the river - clay and water, trees and bone - carry their memories forward.

Author Visit - Nickolas Butler (Sunday, September 28 at 2pm)
Wisconsin’s own Nickolas Butler will be visiting the Tower Road Branch on Sunday, September 28, 2014 at 2:00 PM. Butler will be speaking about his debut novel, Shotgun Lovesongs, have a question and answer session, as well as signing books.

Butler’s debut novel, Shotgun Lovesongs, is about a hometown and group of lifelong friends. One of the friends is a rock star; one is a farmer; another friend was once a rodeo star now brain damaged alcoholic; the last friend is yuppie trying to make a comeback. With all those personalities back in the small town of Little Wing, there’s bound to be secrets revealed, life successes, and life failures. The New York Times hailed his debut novel as “impressively original” and Amazon named Shotgun Lovesongs their book of the month in March 2014.

Nickolas Butler was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania and raised in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. He was educated at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Iowa Writer’s Workshop. His past professions include: a meatpacker; a Burger King maintenance man; an author escort; an innkeeper; and other odd vocations. He lives on 16 acres of land with his wife and two children next to a buffalo farm.

This is a free event, open to everyone, and made possible by the generosity of the Friends of the Library.
