Registration: Register!

Help us celebrate National Library Week with the true story of Lutie Stearns!

Lutie established hundreds of traveling libraries in Wisconsin. Her mission of sharing books brought her to North Woods lumber camps, to farming communities, and to industrial centers throughout the state. Despite a devastating stutter, she gave thousands of book talks and became a famous public speaker. Lutie emerged as a passionate advocate for literacy, a Progressive political activist, a campaigner for women’s rights, and an astute community organizer.

Everyone who participates in this program will receive a copy of Books in a Box, thanks to our presenter and author, Stuart Stotts.
