A Look Back : Postcards of Oshkosh

Ron Metz of the Oshkosh Memorabilia Club shares a slice of local history with his unmatched collection of Oshkosh postcards. His slide show includes hundreds of postcards from the 1800s through the 1970s, featuring scenes from the downtown area, local buildings and landmarks, businesses and people who lived here. Some postcards are rare and many depict businesses, institutions and community landmarks that have been gone for years.

Local Author Spotlight : Laurence Dunn

Ugly … But Funny
Presenter: Laurence Dunn

What happens when a quiet geek tosses a half-dozen lab mice into a crowd of girls at a hockey game? Will the trauma of being squeezed between two 250-pound women in the back seat of a car ruin one shy teenager’s life? Have you ever seen a “church key”? Laurence Dunn shares childhood stories that are a rollicking trip back in time for those who lived in the ‘50s and a humorous adventure in history for anyone born later. It’s ugly, but funny. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Lower level meeting room.
