Author Visit with Jesse Steinke
Saturday, August 6
2:00 – 3:00 p.m.
“Around Eagle is the latest of history books in the Images of America book series from Arcadia Publishing. “Around Eagle” provides almost 200 photos and descriptions of Eagle and the surrounding areas of the almost forgotten hamlets of Palestine, Jericho, Eagleville, and Melendy’s Prairie. The book’s photos how Eagle’s geography was created, how people lived, worked, played, and supported their community 100+ years ago, and some of the key families that created Eagle.

Author Jesse Steinke is an 8th generation descendant of Eagle’s pioneers that settled in Eagle as far back as 1842. He combed through over 4,000 photos, many of which were taken by his great grandfather’s brother, Sidney Sprague, to create a broad yet comprehensive book. All ages are welcome and the program will provide an overview of the book, highlight some of the most interesting photos that did and didn’t make the book as well as a question and answer period. Books will be for sale before and after the event and can be signed.

This program will be hybrid — in-person and available through Zoom. Please rsvp with “Author Visit” to rsvplibraryprograms@gmail.com and you will receive Zoom information prior to the program.

Noted speaker Rochelle Pennington will present “The Story of the Edmund Fitzgerald”. Please bring your own lunch for this program and the library will provide water. Open to all ages. Please register with the library at 262-594-2800.

No other Great Lakes shipwreck is more well-known than the Edmund Fitzgerald, which disappeared into a stormy Lake Superior on November 10, 1975, when wind gusts peaked at more than 100 miles per hour and waves reached the height of three-story buildings. The Edmund Fitzgerald remains the largest shipwreck on the Great Lakes to this day. Pennington presents the various theories and opposing views of dive detectives who are still trying to solve the mystery of what led to the demise of the 29-man crew. The presentation will cover the ship’s launch to its final radio broadcasts, and from the Fitz’s discovery on Superior’s bottom to the raising of artifacts from its watery grave.
