Lodi Valley News serving Lodi, WI & the Lake Wisconsin area with local information since Earth Day 2008.

In a rare speaking engagement, noted Wisconsin novelist David Rhodes will visit Lodi Public Library on Tuesday, September 28 to discuss his career, inspirations, and answer questions.

Rhodes has been in a wheelchair since the late 1970s when a motorcycle accident left him paralyzed. He is a lively and engaging speaker, but due to his health challenges, Rhodes does not tour or speak frequently. This will be a unique opportunity to hear him read from his work and discuss writing.

Rhodes has published four novels: Driftless (Milkweed, 2008) explores connections within a small southwest Wisconsin village; it was also his first published work since his accident. Rhodes and his wife, Edna, live in Wonewoc, Wisconsin.

For more information, please visit the Lodi Public Library website at or phone 592-4130.
