April 14, 10 am, Central Library
The treats at this year’s Friends’ Annual Meeting will not be confined to the yummy brunch. Local author Margean Gladysz will treat the audience to stories of her time as the “Spy on the Bus.”
It was quite an adventure for an 18 year old farm girl and college graduate to leave home back then, let alone travel all over the country, by herself, on a bus. Her job was to pose as a passenger and report back to the company on the bus driver’s honesty and performance. An excellent speaker, Margean is sure to entertain you with her humorous anecdotes about life on the road in the 1940s. Her detailed recollections (sparked by finding the letters she wrote home carefully saved by her mother) provide a colorful portrait of the period.
You don’t have to be a Friends’ member to join us for this highly anticipated program but reservations are required. Just send your name, with $10 per person to cover the cost of brunch, to Friends of KPL, 315 S. Rose St., Kalamazoo, MI 49007 or drop your reservation with payment at the Friends Bookstore by April 7. We look forward to seeing you!
