COVER4bookmarkNext time you visit us please consider purchasing your copy of the book “WHISTLE-STOP POEMS” (2nd edition) by Harrington Williams, published by the Oscar Grady Public Library.

Called “The Poet of Saukville”, Harrington Williams lived a short but full life, from being a sailor in Southeast Asia, a sports writer for The Ozaukee Press, to a writer of poems that show the local color of bygone times in a very sensible and animated way.

Luckily, we have been able at the Oscar Grady Library to publish in-house a second edition of his Whistle-Stop Poems, to preserve and promote his work for new generations, making it available in book form at a very accessible price.

astronautwivesclubcoverThe Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel

As America’s Mercury Seven astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, television cameras focused on the brave smiles of their young wives. Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy, appeared on the cover of Life magazine, and quickly grew into fashion icons.

Koppel’s book describes what lives were like for a group of military wives, including Annie Glenn, Rene Carpenter, Betty Grissom and Louise Shepherd, who were thrust into the spotlight when their husbands became Mercury Seven astronauts and made them stars.

Limited copies of this book will be available at the circulation desk. All are welcome to attend! Can’t make it to the discussion? Sign up at the circulation desk for our online book club!
