Foundation Stories

More than 30 guests purchased tickets at last year’s Library Lets Loose fundraising event for a one-of-a-kind opportunity to meet and mingle with two celebrated local authors and personalities.

A Conversation with Candice Millard and Steve Kraske” was hosted last month at the home of Vickie and Dale Trott. Their gracious hospitality allowed guests to meet these two literary treasures and sit in on their lively conversation.

Award winning author, Candice Millard is the author of three New York Times best-selling books. Steve Kraske is an award-winning print and broadcast journalist locally known for his work with The Kansas City Star and 89.3 FM KCUR host of “Up to Date.”

This exclusive event allowed library-lovers to connect with Candice and Steve and hear their lively discussion which covered topics that were both entertaining and informative. Guests also received signed copies of Candice’s books.
