Program: "Wheel Fever"
Speakers: Jesse Gant and Nicholas Hoffman

Wheel Fever is about the origins of bicycling in Wisconsin and why those origins still matter.  From the velocipede era to the crashing end of first bicycle boom, the authors will share their thoughts on the impassioned debate over who should be allowed to ride, where they could ride, and even what they could wear.

Featured Book: The Son
Author:  Phillip Meyer

Philipp Meyer, the acclaimed author of American Rust, returns with The Son: an epic of the American West and a multigenerational saga of power, blood, land, and oil that follows the rise of one unforgettable Texas family, from the Comanche raids of the 1800s to the to the oil booms of the 20th century.

Harrowing, panoramic, and deeply evocative, The Son is a fully realized masterwork in the greatest tradition of the American canon—an unforgettable novel that combines the narrative prowess of Larry McMurtry with the knife-edge sharpness of Cormac McCarthy.
