A real-life fairy tale romance...sigh

Sometimes a real-life story reads very much like fiction, and I think Seven Letters from Paris: a Memoir by Samantha Verant is a perfect example of a modern day fairy tale come true. The author shares her personal story of how a bundle of seven romantic love letters from her past lead her to pick herself up when her life was at its lowest and reach for the happiness she deserves. She tells it all - the good, the bad and the ugly - with just the right amount of humor mixed in.

Return to FDL's 'Grand Manner' days Feb 19

Years ago, attorney Terry Gaffney came across souvenir guide books from the late 1890s and early 1900s that promoted Fond du Lac to visitors and conventioneers. Both books included pages of photos of “representative” homes, featuring the abodes of the city’s most-comfortable citizens.

Intrigued, Gaffney tracked down the houses. Some were in disrepair and some beautifully restored.

Federal tax instructions available to borrow only

For many years, the Fond du Lac Public Library has been one of the only places in the area where the public can pick up free tax-preparation forms. However, the Internal Revenue Service recently informed the library that it would not provide printed copies of instruction booklets, citing budget cuts. Forms will be available – they likely will start arriving at the library in late January – but not instruction booklets for federal taxes.

Sweet stories with plenty of heat

The Sweetheart Sisters series by Shirley Jump combines sweet stories with plenty of heat. Set in Rescue Bay, Florida, the "sisters" are a trio of sassy, well-meaning grannies living at the Golden Years Retirement Home who think their mission in life is to play matchmaker for the town of Rescue Bay, all while giving some old-school lessons in love. Add in the elements of an animal rescue facility and numerous subplots, and these stories tug at your heartstrings while making you laugh out loud.
