Carol Mullen will talk on “Beyond Beer and Lederhosen: The Germans
in the La Crosse area”. She comes from a local German American family, is a retired
public librarian, and volunteers for La Crosse County Historical Society. She’ll briefly
outline the history of Germans in La Crosse County; touch on some differences
between Germans and German Americans, and how German stereotypes and realities
are two different things; plus share a few photos/stories of her German family
members and their life here, with thoughts on what that heritage has meant to her.
