Welcoming Storyteller Jim Mans! Monday, May 9, 1:30 p.m.
Author and storyteller Jim Mans has spent a lifetime collecting and telling stories about people whose experiences have contributed to the fabric and culture of Minnesota.
On Monday, May 9, at 1:30 p.m. Unlimited Learning will welcome Jim Mans, who will share lessons of work and travel as well as excerpts from his book “Twiddle Yer Toes.” The presentation will be in the Forum Room at Crosby-Ironton High School.
A review of the book describes it as “Wry, witty, insightful, and kind.” The reviewer continues, “Jim succinctly and hilariously gives the reader a glimpse of the fascinating, everyday people he stumbles upon. This book is a loving compilation of vignettes that are pretty much assured to give you a laugh while making you think!”
For fifteen years, Mans wrote for the Lake Country Journal and has been published in other periodicals and newspapers. He is proud to be the founder, president and chairman of the board of the “Minnesota Sit ‘n’ Spit Club” and part owner of Minnesota. He is currently enjoying retirement in Central Minnesota with his wife, Jan, and three beloved dogs.
The fee is $5.00 for non-members, and it’s free for members.
