Join us for a special reading during Fermentation Fest by author and Reedsburg native Krista Eastman Saturday, October 12, 5–6 p.m. at the Reedsburg Public Library, 370 Vine Street followed by Q&A. The event is free and open to the public. Krista will read from The Painted Forest --named one of the best literary nonfiction debuts of 2019 by Poets & Writers. Books will be available for purchase. After the reading, consider dining and sipping mezcal with Lou Bank down the street at the Avalon Ballroom, 6:30 p.m. Dinner registration ($65) here.
The Painted Forest, Krista’s new book of essays, explores the myths we make about who we are and where we’re from. She uncovers strange and little-known “home places”—not only the picturesque hills and valleys of her childhood in Reedsburg, but also tourist towns, the “under-imagined and overly caricatured” Midwest, and a far-flung station in Antarctica.
