Join us at the Neenah Public Library on Monday, April 1st at 2:00 PM for the adult afternoon program, Wisconsin Waters: The Ancient History of Lakes, Rivers, and Waterfalls presented by author, Scott Spoolman.
Scott Spoolman invites you to explore Wisconsin’s many and varied waterways and to learn of how they came to be as they are today. From the placid Mississippi, to waterfalls crashing over hard rock ledges near Lake Superior, to life bursting forth in one of the world’s largest freshwater marshes, these waterways each have a fascinating story to tell. Scott will sample a few of the 19 stories from his new book, Wisconsin Waters: The Ancient History of Lakes, Rivers, and Waterfalls. He will include readings from the stories and from the travel guides that follow each story, helping readers to get out and explore each site on their own.
Spoolman’s book, Wisconsin Waters, will be available for sale at the event for $28.
Scott Spoolman is a science writer who has focused on the environmental sciences, especially those stories of natural science and the environment related to Wisconsin and surrounding states.

He has coauthored several editions of a series of environmental science textbooks.
