Schopplein featured Saturday at Wild About Books

CLEARLAKE – Wild About Books will host Joe Schopplein, author of “But, Fear Itself …”, at a book signing event on Saturday, Aug. 30 at 2 p.m.


“On my 78th birthday, I found about 60 rough drawings I had started to make as a teenager,” Schopplein said. “I originally planned to use them someday as a basis for more finished art to illustrate a book about my experiences of growing up in Nazi Germany. Instead, I decided to use them just as they are, and simply wrap some text around each drawing. To make sure my memories would not be adapted to anyone else’s ideas.”


In 2003 Schopplein retired to Lake County. He is now a member of the Konocti Plein Air Painters.


Wild About Books is located at 14290 Olympic Drive in Clearlake, next door to Lisa's clothing store.
