June Melby’s recently published memoir, My Family and Other Hazards, is TERRIFIC! I don’t want to put it down. It’s about her life growing up in Waupaca when her family owned and operated Tom Thumb Miniature Golf Course. Her writing is entertaining and for those of us who grew up in the mid-west with Scandinavian heritage oh so true! Each chapter has a theme taken from one of the hazards on the course – she is so clever! That she was a stand up comedienne in LA when we lived in CA adds to my enjoyment.  We were thrilled to host her family for their big reunion in Waupaca and got to hear more family stories. We were so surprised when an unrelated guest (librarian) arrived the day after they left who asked what I was reading. I told him it was a new book by June Melby. The librarian said, “I just read it. It’s great!” It’s got a lovely review from the Christian Science Monitor. It’s on the New York Times Best Seller list under sports section. Check it out.
