In addition to their regular programming, the Sturgeon Bay branch of the Door County library will host a pair of special events this December.
On Dec. 13 at 2 pm, Door County resident Kevin Quinn will present “A Long Walk: Hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine” in the Jane Greene Room. Quinn recently completed hiking the entire Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to Maine, in one continuous effort. He will describe in words and pictures what is involved in such an undertaking and give the audience a sample of the rugged beauty of this national scenic trail.
A Brown Bag Lunch Book Discussion is planned for Dec. 15 at 11 am in the Jane Greene Room, with Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City as the book up for discussion. Bring your own lunch; coffee and cookies will be provided. Join Door County Library and the League of Women Voters for a discussion of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Matthew Desmond. This brilliant, heartbreaking book takes readers into the poorest neighborhoods of Milwaukee to tell the story of eight families on the edge. Based on years of embedded fieldwork and painstakingly gathered data, this masterful book transforms our understanding of extreme poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving a devastating, uniquely American problem. Copies of the book are available through InfoSoup.org. A study guide is available with the library Hoopla app. For more information, call Laura at 920.746.7121 or visit doorcountylibrary.org.
