In addition, Cornerstone Press will host a literary trivia night from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Dec. 4 in room 116 of the College of Professional Studies. Suhr also will be the guest speaker and a featured reader at the university’s annual Writer’s Workshop for high school students on Dec. 5.

Featuring characters carved out of the Wisconsin landscape, “Nothing to Lose” showcases a region full of real people who are less than perfect, plagued with doubts and always reaching.

A resident of Wales, Wisconsin, Suhr is the author of “Maybe I’ll Learn: Snapshots of a Novice Mom” and the director of Red Oak Writing, where she teaches youth camps, leads writers’ roundtables and provides manuscript critiques.
