Doug Ohman to Visit for Coffee & Conversation on November 21

Coffee & Conversation Kickoff with Doug Ohman
Monday, November 21
10:30 – 11:30 AM
St. Charles Public Library

Starting on Monday, November 21, the St. Charles Public Library is launching our Coffee & Conversation program.  Join us at the library every Monday morning at 10:30am for some free coffee. To kick the program off, we have invited special guest speaker Doug Ohman to present “Hidden in Plain View: Cemeteries of Minnesota.”

Doug Ohman is a popular speaker, historian, author and entertaining storyteller.  He is also an expert photographer with deep Minnesota roots.  Living in Minnesota with his wife Krin, Ohman has spent the last 30 years uncovering and bringing Minnesota’s history to life in a fun and casual style.

In his visit to the St. Charles Public Library, Ohman will go into depth on cemeteries of Minnesota.  Walk along with Ohman as he shows photographs of cemeteries and uncovers stories of the long forgotten.  Learn where the only Revolutionary War soldier to die in Minnesota is buried.  Learn the difference between a cemetery and a graveyard, and much more.

This program is possible due to support from the St. Charles Area Community Foundation, Friends of the St. Charles Public Library, and a donation made in memory of Ginny Buck.
