Author Rhonda Fochs To Visit Pierz Public Library
Rhonda Fochs, author of "Minnesota's Lost Towns" will be visiting the Pierz Public Library on Wednesday, June 4 at 5:30 p.m. Her book is a journey to the past and a visit to nearly 150 northern Minnesota lost towns. Read and listen to what created them, how they grew and prospered, why they died, where they were located and what you'll see there today.
This will be a history lesson, where you will learn the stages of a "boom and bust" cycle and how lost towns are classified according to their physical remnants. View the comparative "then and now" photo display of some of the historical town sites.
Feel free to bring your own memories and stories of your own places of the past to share. This is a free event. Plan to visit the Pierz Public Library to meet author Rhonda Fochs and share in all the memories of "Minnesota's Lost Towns".
