Local author’s book signing

Whitewater author Dr. Suzanne Popke will give a book reading and signing on Sunday, July 25, at 2pm (location: 143 W. Main St., Whitewater, Office of Wisconsin Community Mental Health Counseling Center & Deeper Insight Art Gallery).

Birth of a new race: Poems for a dead storyteller, Popke’s third book, is about “a grandmother from Sioux Indian country in the late 1800s that still has things to teach her great grandchildren in the 21st century.” It combines one family’s personal story with Wisconsin history and traditional Lakota tales through narrative poems.

Andersen Library’s 1st-floor Special Collections has a copy of Popke’s book on intercountry adoption, Siberian Pearls: A Buryat journey.
