Book club guest is 'Eddy'

An author with close New York Mills ties will be a guest speaker at a book club meeting May 20, at the St. Peter's Lutheran Church in New York Mills.

Joe Paatalo will be meeting with the book club to discuss his book "The Eddy," at 7 p.m. at the church.

A teacher in River Falls, Wisconsin, Paatalo is an avid trout fisherman and the book deploys fishing as a central theme-but its subtext explores more than just angling. The book is one that anybody would enjoy reading-regardless of whether or not they are fisherpeople.

He is the son of John and Delores Paatalo of New York Mills.
