"Paddle for a Purpose" is the memoir of Barb and Gene Geiger’s paddle from the Headwaters of the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico in the wooden tandem kayak they built. During the trip, they spent time in river towns along the way volunteering with over two-dozen non-profit organizations and blogged about what these charities do to help others. Barb and Gene join us to discuss their journey and the book.

Barb and Gene have a book talk and signing at Books & Company in Oconomowoc today, July 26, at 7pm. For more information and to buy the book, visit
