"The Gift of Water" book release reading at the Peter White Public Library


In celebration of World Water Week, the Peter White Public Library is hosting the book release event for "The Gift of Water," an anthology of essays previously published in the Marquette Monthly. Public Radio 90's Hans Ahlstrom spoke with Martin Achatz about the book and the event, which will feature several of the authors reading their essays. The book is edited by Paul Lehmberg and published by the Cedar Tree Institute.

The book release event takes place Tuesday, Aug 22nd, from 6-8pm at the Peter White Public Library in the Community Room

Hans Ahlström is the host of several programs including the daily musical variety show Weekday, the mostly straight ahead jazz show Night Studio, the self explanatory Blues Today, and the eclectic Sound Spectrum. You can also hear Hans as the local host of NPR's All Things Considered news magazine. He also helps manage Public Radio 90's web content, interviews local and visiting writers and artists, works with NMU student interns, and writes the occasional news story.
