The Book Cellar Presents a Global Beer Tasting w. Editor Claire Ohlsson Geheb, "Dear Willy"
Experience a global beer tour with Author/Editor Claire Ohlsson Geheb as we follow the adventures of Willy Geheb from WWI Germany to post WWII Chicago in the historically significant new book, "Dear Willy: The True Story of a Life Well Lived".

Included with each ticket is a beer tasting put on by Louis Glunz Beer Inc. and empanadas from Artango.

About Dear Willy:

When Claire Ohlsson Geheb opened an old suitcase, the contents revealed the struggles and determination of the German Geheb family as they survived the years from 1914 to 1947. Step back into the past. Spend some time with a real German family during the difficult years of 1914 to 1947. Get to know Willy Oswald Geheb, a young man who would not settle for what little Germany had to offer. He left his home to pursue his dreams. Get involved in the adventures, heartaches, love, and passions of the Geheb family. Join Willy Geheb in military training in Germany in 1918. Follow his adventures, endeavors, and conflicts in Brazil, Mexico, and the United States. Discover what ordinary Germans lived through after the First World War as their king abdicated, a new government was formed, and money totally lost its value. Follow Hitler's rise from young revolutionary to full dictator and see how it affected the German people. Watch as the Geheb family grows and develops only to be taken to their knees after WWII. Experience the vast differences between Germany and America as the stories are revealed through photos and the actual letters written at the time events were happening. You will be inspired by the never ending love and devotion that Willy Geheb had for his family.
