MEQUON - The Frank L. Weyenberg Library, 11345 N. Cedarburg Road, will host author/songwriter Bill Jamerson at 6 p.m., Monday, March 13.

Jamerson will present a music and storytelling program about the Civilian Conservation Corps.

The CCC was a federal works program created in 1933 during the Great Depression by President Franklin Roosevelt. Over nine years, 92,000 young men worked in Wisconsin camps, with one camp located 1 mile southeast of Mequon, which opened in June 1939.

During the program, Jamerson will share stories about the CCC, read portions of his novel, sing songs, and show a video from his PBS film.

Some of Jamerson’s songs include “Franklin D,” written by an appreciative CCC boy, “Chowtime,” and “City Slicker,” among others.

For more information, contact the library’s reference department at 262-242-2593, ext. 320.
