Spring Literary Luncheon

Friends Welcome Elizabeth Strout

Thank you Friends, sponsors, volunteers, book clubs and library lovers who
attended the Spring Literary Luncheon. A sold out Wisconsin Club crowd
laughed and loved author Elizabeth Strout.

The Friends of Milwaukee Public Library, together with Boswell Book
Company and the Wisconsin Club, were thrilled to host the Pulitzer Prize-winning
and #1 New York Times bestselling author. Strout inspired with her
emotional truthfulness and elements of compassion in a personal reading of
Anything is Possible.

Special thanks to our event partners
