The Evening Reader’s Group will be discussing The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani. The Shoemaker's Wife begins in the Northern Alps in 1905 and follows the lives of Ciro and Eduardo Lazzari, brothers who grew up in a convent because their widowed mother could not care for them. It's also the story of Enza Ravanelli and her big-hearted family whose financial struggles come to a fateful bend in the road when Enza decides to go to America to earn money. She would not know until a chance meeting in New York that Ciro, a boy she kissed and thought never to see again, had also traveled to America to seek his fortune. The Shoemaker's Wife is built around the staggering cultural and social changes the war years swept in. In America, the flood of mostly European immigrants changed the country's look and landscape. Join us for what should be a fascinating read!Read more»

Containers can serve a lot of functions around your home. If you live in an apartment, they can turn your balcony into a vegetable or herb garden. Around a home, containers can dress up an entry way or add interest to a flower bed. Join Tom from the Outagamie County Master Gardeners to discuss the uses for container gardening and demonstrate how to put a container together. There will be a drawing for the containers that we assemble.
