The Kiel Public Library will host a book talk on the historical Kiel novel “Yellowbird” on Saturday, Feb, 4 starting at 1 p.m. on the day of the city’s annual ice sculpting competition.

Editors Ed Majkrzak Sr. and Brad Vogel will discuss the book’s history and take questions.
A classic Kiel tale, “Yellowbird” is finally back in print after 116 years. The book was written in German by Kiel resident Henry Goeres in the late 1800s and translated into English in 1900. Its full title is “Yellowbird: A True Tale of the Early Settlement of Town Schleswig, Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.” After more than a decade of research and editing, Majkrzak and Vogel have published a new edition of the book.
