A love letter to city life in all its guts and grandeur, "Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk" by Kathleen Rooney paints a portrait of a remarkable woman across the canvas of a changing America: from the Jazz Age to the onset of the AIDS epidemic; the Great Depression to the birth of hip-hop. Kathleen joins us to discuss her inspiration for the book and how you can meet her today at couple of great events!

Kathleen Rooney has a book signing today, June 26, at 2pm at the Frank L. Weyenberg Library in Mequon. Then at 6:30pm, she'll be at the Elm Grove Library. Both events are produced by Boswell Book Company. For more information, visit
