NISSWA — Songwriter, writer and performer Elisa Korenne will be the guest speaker at the April 21 Nisswa Women's Club meeting at Roundhouse Brewery in Nisswa.

Her topic is “Madams, Matrons and Madwomen: Extraordinary Historical Women in the Upper Midwest.”

Korenne went from being a Yale graduate running an international nonprofit in Brooklyn to a small town Minnesota resident living in New York Mills “where everybody knows your name.”

Her memoir, "Hundred Miles to Nowhere: An Unlikely Love Story," tells her story of finding love in the unexpected place of New York Mills where she spent a month as artist in residence.

She now appears throughout the Midwest sharing stories and music of unusual people and events of the Upper Midwest.

Social hour will be at 11:30 a.m. with lunch at noon. The lunch charge is $25. Club President Ann Swanson will lead a short meeting after Korenne’s presentation, and Mary Anne Bennett with help from Marian Anderson will offer an inspirational message.

Guests are always welcome. For information on joining the club or attending meetings, email info@nisswawomensclub.org.
