GAVIN ZASTROW- author of A Marshland of His Own
Tuesday, August 13th  7:00 p.m.
Books & Company 1039 Summit Ave, Oconomowoc, WI

Join us in welcoming someone who is probably a familiar face to many! Gavin Zastrow will be at Book & Company speaking about his memoir, A Marshland of His Own.

A Marshland of His Own is author Gavin Zastow's first-time experience with death. Twenty-six years ago, Gavin's friend committed suicide. One year later, he decided at the urging of his friends, family, and teachers to turn that experience from a short story into a book. This book was written from the point of view of a high school student. Outside of grammatical changes and minor edits, all the thoughts and events hold true to that high school voice. A Marshland of His Own is divided into three parts: mourning, mending, and moving on, which follows the grief process Gavin went through and how, through that process, he learned to heal and move on with his life. This event marked the turning point between the end of the naivety of childhood and the beginning of the complexities of adulthood.

 

About the Author: Gavin Zastrow, known to many as Z, is a teacher at Stone Bank School in Stone Bank, Wisconsin, where he has worked for many years. He received his Bachelor's in Education from Miami University in Ohio and his Master's in Administrative Education from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He also obtained his Reading 316 and 317 licenses from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Gavin has lived in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, for most of his life, and enjoys reading, sports, spending time on Okauchee Lake, and being with his family.
