Hidden Headlines of Wisconsin
Chad Lewis, author and researcher, will present a program on “Hidden Headlines of Wisconsin – Strange Unusual and Bizarre Newspaper Stories 1860-1910” at the Graham Public Library, 1215 Main Street in Union Grove on Wednesday, September 26 from 2-3 p.m.  This presentation showcases over 200 unusual articles that appeared in Wisconsin newspapers.  From curious citizens and weird creatures to strange deaths and other unbelievable accounts, this presentation looks at the good old days of Wisconsin where you could step out of your country home and take a leisurely stroll past the local pharmacy to the city pond where kids would be fishing the day away right next to where the sea serpent was spotted.  It was a time when courting sweethearts could go for a quiet drive through the countryside and be terrorized by the “wild man.”  It was a time when the family was still important in our lives and loving parents proudly gave birth to a half dog and half child.  It was a time when starry eyed kids gazed into the dark night sky and wondered about the universe while watching a hovering disk slowly float over their home.
 
No registration is necessary for this program.  For questions, call the library at 878-2910.
