Sit Down and Stay Awhile: My Aunt Lil, A Small-Town Bar, and a Lifetime of Polkas written by Ken Szymanski, as told by Lil Kaczmarek
From Ken Szymanski:
Ken Szymanski, the official 2020-2024 Writer-in-Residence for the city of Eau Claire, is releasing his latest book, Sit Down and Stay Awhile: My Aunt Lil, a Small-Town Bar, and a Lifetime of Polkas. The book tells the life-story of Lil Kaczmarek, who for 52 years was co-owner of Leon & Lil’s tavern in Thorp, WI. Lil is now 96 years old and still a celebrity in Thorp. Sit Down and Stay Awhile is not a history lesson; rather it’s like sitting down at the bar with a great bartender on a slow Saturday afternoon, listening to a series of great stories spanning the decades.
