Wisconsin’s Wild Lakes: a book talk with author John Bates
December 14, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Author John Bates will discuss his newly-released book, Wisconsin’s Wild Lakes: a guide to the last undeveloped natural lakes by John Bates and illustrated by Rebecca Jabs. Join us for this event on Tuesday, December 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the Mercer Community Center.
Of Wisconsin’s over 15,000 lakes, very few wild lakes remain. These are rare places where remarkable peace and beauty abounds, and where native wildlife flourishes. Over the last four years, Bates has paddled or visited nearly all of these remaining wild lakes, and he describes them in detail in this comprehensive, illustrated guide. The book directs visitors to the 55 best wild lakes left in Wisconsin.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase, just in time for holiday gift giving! Cookies and light refreshments will be served. All are welcome and there is no cost for the event. For more information, call the Mercer Library at 715-476-2366.
