Neenah Author's Series

At 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, Neenah Public Library will host Barbara Manger and Janine Smith, authors of Mary Nohl: Inside and Outside.

Artist Mary Nohl’s mysterious, modest home adorned with stone-encrusted creatures, imposing driftwood figures and other pieces of art along Lake Michigan’s shoreline may be the most famous residence in Greater Milwaukee. When Nohl died in 2001, she left her house and personal collection to the Kohler Foundation to make sure that it would remain intact. She also left her personal estate, valued at $11.3 million, to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the library. Copies will also be available for purchase and signing at the event.
