THE LADY WITH ALL THE ANSWERS comes to Oconto Falls

LADY WITH ALL THE ANSWERS 2The Oconto Falls Friends of the Arts will be presenting THE LADY WITH ALL THE ANSWERS by the Nebraska Theatre Caravan on Sunday, October 19 at 6:00 p.m. in the Falls Area Performing Arts Center.

For decades, renowned newspaper advice columnist Ann Landers responded to countless questions from lovelorn teens, confused couples, and a multitude of others in need of advice on matters small and momentous – like the proper way to hang toilet paper rolls. This one-woman show provides a compelling portrait of this folksy, funny, frank, and slightly eccentric writer and personality. Eppie Lederer was born in Sioux City,Iowa, and for several years was a happy Midwestern housewife. When her family moved to Chicago, she applied for a job to assist the woman writing the syndicated “Ann Landers” advice column for the Chicago Sun-Times. But the woman had just died and Eppie was hired to write the column … and she also inherited the Ann Landers pen-name. At the height of her popularity, Ann Landers was read by some 90 million people. Her daily dialog with America helped shape the social landscape for almost half a century.

Tickets are available by calling the Oconto Falls Friends of the Arts at (920) 848-7469 or online at www.ocontofallsfriendsofthearts.com This performance is sponsored in part by ST Paper, Neva Hodge-Lemorande,
and the N.E. W. Credit Union.
