Flash Fiction

Today we bring you a special presentation of short stories read to you by the authors. In July we had a flash fiction contest here at the library. Participants had to stop into the library to use our manual typewriter to write their piece of flash fiction. They got one page of paper, a typewriter, and their brain: that’s it. In third place: Patti Whisman will read her story, “Saturn.” In second place: Diane Whisman will read her story, “Last Transmission.” In first place: Rick Humphreys will read his story, “My Green-striped Couch.” More podcasts at: mcmillanlibrary.org/podcasts

Wisc. Rapids Boxing with Dale "The Hurricane" Horn

Today we talk to local man Dale Horn who boxed out of the Wisconsin Rapids Boxing Club. I came to start talking to him as he was doing some research on his old boxing bouts using the library’s microfilm reels of old newspapers. His story intrigued me, so asked him if he would do a podcast when he was finished. In the meantime, the New York Times ran a story about his old gym the Wisconsin Rapids Boxing Club, and even mentioned him. You can read the article here: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/07/sports/wisconsin-rapids-boxing-club.html More podcasts at: mcmillanlibrary.org/podcasts

Hiking the Appalachian Trail with Greg an Jen Seymour

Greg and Jen Seymour gave a presentation for our Author's @ McMillan Series. The Appalachian Trail is the longest continuous hiking-only trail in the United States. Starting in Georgia and ending in Maine, the “AT” traverses 2200 miles through 14 states and takes the average “thru-hiker” six months to complete. Greg and Jen Seymour completed the trail over 179 days in 2017. In this presentation they will discuss answers to the following questions (and more): Why the heck would you want to do that? What did you eat? How much did your pack weigh? Where did you sleep? What about bears? How often did you shower? What about lightning storms? Join the couple for an entertaining evening discussing all aspects of thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. This presentation was recorded January 31, 2019 at the McMillan Memorial Library.
