If there is one thing that Ray Tuholsky loves more than fishing, it’s telling a story! Join us at Breakfast Club with Ray to hear stories about how war had an influence on fishing and see some old lures, rods, and reels. From a mischievous 8-year old to the present day, his stories tell of a man’s life through fishing. Full of humor, mixed with a little inspiration, they tell of family, friends, and the “big one that got away.” All Fishermen Are Liars is Tuholsky’s first book.
Come to the Stearns History Museum for Breakfast Club at
9 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 11, to hear author Ray Tuholsky tell humorous true stories about fishing, fishing history, and inspiration. This event is free to members, non-members $5.
