You're invited to Madison Public Library Foundation's next Educational Series virtual presentation, Long-Term Care: Meeting Health & Personal Needs, from noon–1 p.m. Tuesday, April 27.

Preparing a care plan for yourself and your loved ones will provide you with ample time to weigh the big decisions that it requires. Our three speakers will cover:

• necessary legal documents, such as powers of attorney and a living will

• various options for care settings

• where the real utilization of long-term care occurs (hint: it's not in nursing homes)

• the types of insurance plans available to protect estates against long-term care costs

Speakers for this event include:

Meghan M. Teigan, partner at Johnson Teigen LLC. Her practice focuses on estate planning, special needs planning, elder law, and probate and trust administration.

Reginald Hislop, CEO of Oakwood Lutheran Senior Ministries. He is an expert in post-acute care, including assisted living, nursing homes, rehabilitation, home health and other non-hospital health services. 

Dale Kalscheur, Vice President and Agent at Neckerman Insurance Services. He specializes in business, life, long-term care and disability insurance.

Wisconsin Book Festival Presents Angela Garbes for Like a Mother

Wisconsin Book Festival Presents Angela Garbes for Like a Mother

*Offsite
Tuesday, Apr 27, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

A candid, feminist, and personal deep dive into the science and culture of pregnancy and motherhood. Like most first-time mothers, Angela Garbes was filled with questions when she became pregnant. What exactly is a placenta and how does it function? How does a body go into labor? Why is breast best? Is wine totally off-limits? But as she soon discovered, it’s not easy to find satisfying answers. Your obstetrician will cautiously quote statistics; online sources will scare you with conflicting and often inaccurate data; and even the most trusted books will offer information with a heavy dose of judgment. To educate herself, the food and culture writer embarked on an intensive journey of exploration, diving into the scientific mysteries and cultural attitudes that surround motherhood to find answers to questions that had only previously been given in the form of advice about what women ought to do—rather than allowing them the freedom to choose the right path for themselves.

Angela Garbes will appear on Crowdcast to discuss her book, Like a MotherJoin the event at: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/wbf-like-a-mother.
