Gavin Schmitt and Kerry Trask 
Book signing
Saturday, April 28

Authors Gavin Schmitt and Dr. Kerry Trask will sign books at LaDeDa Books & Beans, 1624 New York Ave, Saturday, April 28, from 11:00-1:00. 
Schmitt will be signing his latest book, Fox Cities Murder and Mayhem.  Although the book focuses on the Fox Cities, it has a wide appeal for those who like historical true crime tales. One such tale is that of murderer Wenzel Kabat, a Manitowoc native.  

Schmitt, a Wisconsin-based writer is regularly interviewed on radio and newspaper.  He is best known for his work on organized crime in Wisconsin which he wrote about in The Milwaukee Mafia.

Trask’s latest book titled Look for Me in Rainbows, deals with the murder of 15 year-old Barbara, the daughter of Track’s Aunt Erma. The tactics used by the trial judge and the subsequent outcome have left many questions for the family, and Trask digs deep to find some answers.  Trask writes “It’s (Look for Me in Rainbows) about the girl who had sparkling brown eyes and loved rainbows, and it is a testament to surviving the storm and mending broken hearts”.  Trask, retired history professor, is also the author of The Fire Within and Black Hawk.

This “meet and greet” event is free and open to the public.  Books by both authors will be available for purchase and signing.  Event information can always be found at, click on the Events tab, or on the store’s Face Book page.
