Author Mary Lang Sollinger and Dr. Zorba Paster live online

October 13 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Author Mary Lang Sollinger and Dr. Zorba Paster live online

 Mary Lang Sollinger is a Madison author and activist. Her new book, “From Inspiration to Activism,” was just named as a finalist in the Chicago Writers Association’s Book of the Year Award for Indie Nonfiction. She and her friend and colleague Dr. Zorba Paster will be live online to discuss her book in a Zoom event through the Columbus Public Library on Tuesday, Oct 13 at 5:30 PM.

When Mary agreed to host a fundraiser for then-Senator Barack Obama in her Madison home, she had no idea how much it would change her life. She traveled to Iowa, Indiana and Pennsylvania and knocked on doors, attended meetings, made phone calls, and learned the basics of grass-roots activism from the ground up. She met an eye-opening variety of like-minded people along the way to her position on national finance campaign committees for then-Candidate Obama.

Mary’s story includes tales from her early days in Campbellsport, a farming community, to her personal stories of well-known political figures.

Mary will give away a free copy of the book to one of the attendees at this Zoom event.

Attendees are reminded that they need not use a computer to attend this event. A smart phone or tablet will also work. Sign up on the library’s website at [email protected] or on the library’s Facebook page. If there are any questions, patrons may call the Columbus Public Library at 920-623-5910 and ask for Catherine.
