The event – which you can sign up for here – takes place on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Filament, a new event space at 131 W. Seeboth St. in Walker's Point. It's free and open to the public. Kashou will also have books for sale on site.
Published by Reedy Press, "100 Things To Do In Milwaukee Before You Die" is a fun, upbeat read filled with rites of passages for all Milwaukeeans – and must-dos for visitors. Suggestions range from Brew City basics like going to a Brewers game to more obscure agenda items like setting sail on the Denis Sullivan or stopping in at the iconic Art Smart's Dart Mart on Brady Street.
"I wanted the book to be easy for people: easy for them to read, easy to engage with and easy to pass on to others at some point," says Kashou.
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
