Dregni_Midwest coverEric Dregni will be at AAUW of West Metro on Saturday, February 17 at 12:30 p.m. for a reading and signing of Midwest Marvels: Roadside Attractions across Iowa, Minnesota, the Dakotas, and Wisconsin.

Regional travel expert Eric Dregni takes the reader on an off-center tour of the bizarre—and the beautiful—across Iowa, Minnesota, the Dakotas, and Wisconsin, from the Corn Palace to the world's tallest structure: a TV tower jutting nearly a half mile into the sky. Complete with descriptions, driving directions, and photographs, Midwest Marvels is a must-have for everyone from armchair travelers to road warriors.

"If you like road trips, and you’ve always wondered about those odd things you see along the way, you’ll like Midwest Marvels. For anyone who has ever been exasperated by the fuzzy unctuousness of so much travel writing, this newly reissued guidebook will be a breath of fresh air." —St. Paul Pioneer Press


"Where on earth would anyone find an assembly of lederhosen-clad chipmunks hoisting their beer steins? At the Moccasin Bar in Hayward, WI, of course, which features other such marvels of taxidermy as sparring squirrels and a beaver referee. Dregni travels to states throughout the Midwest to take in their bizarre tourist attractions. Dregni pens engaging entries, each of which includes a few pages of background, travel instructions, and, in some cases, other nearby stops of interest." —Library Journal
