The Friends of the Fond du Lac Public Library will hold its annual meeting Wednesday, May 1 at 6 p.m. in the McLane Room at the library.

Speaker at this year’s annual meeting will be national bestselling author Sara Richardson (aka Eliza Evans). She writes uplifting stories about love, friendship, and family. 

Her books have received numerous award nominations and critical acclaim, with Publishers Weekly recognizing her stories as “emotionally rich, charmingly funny, and sensitive.”

Completing a master’s degree in journalism inspired Richardson to become a storyteller, and she wrote her first novel soon after. When not writing, Richardson can be found traveling to adventurous destinations, teaching Pilates or living the lake life with her husband, two sons, and two fur babies in the Upper Midwest.

A brief business meeting will precede the talk. Refreshments will be provided.

The Friends of the Fond du Lac Library is a nonprofit organization that promotes and encourages the use of library services by fund-raising, supporting special events such as Fond du Lac Reads, and providing programs for the community.

In the past years, the Friends of the Fond du Lac Public Library have supported such initiatives as the Summer Reading Program. 

The Friends board meets bimonthly at 5:30 pm the second Tuesday of the month. Annual meetings are held every May.
