Author Talk with Carolyn Porter: Wednesday, Sept. 25, 6 pm. Carolyn Porter will discuss her book “Marcel’s Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man’s Fate,” the true account of how Porter stumbled across a bundle of World War II letters in a Stillwater antique store.

Books will be available for purchase and signing. No registration required.
