Heard of Dungeons & Dragons, but not sure how to play? Join the Idea Studio at the Fond du Lac Public Library on Monday, April 25 at 6 p.m. for “Let’s Talk D&D” with Andy Mueller.

He will walk guests through the specifics of playing D&D, ranging group dynamics to game mechanics and more. The presenter for this program, Mueller, is an avid gamer (both PC and tabletop) with extensive experience on stage and years of experience playing Dungeons and Dragons.
