Caxtonian Frank Schier, editor and publisher of Rock River Times, is a certified river rat, having traversed the river's 350 miles (from Horizon Marsh west of Milwaukee through Wisconsin and Illinois to the Mississippi). Frank will center on the meaningful traces he found of Carl Sandburg, Robert Frost, Margaret Atwood, Hamlin Garland, Lorado Taft, Sherwood Anderson, etc. Frank will tell of his unique relationship with his mentor, deceased Caxtonian Peter Stanlis, and the dispersal of his library. Finally, he will speak of the campaign for the Rock River Trail: a waterway, a road and a hiking and biking trail. Brochures available. Frank will bring along favorite books from his significant collection.
