Schraffenberger, a professor at the University of Northern Iowa and associate editor of the “North American Review,” will perform selections from his book “Saint Joe’s Passion.

“Saint Joe’s Passion” follows the life of cancer patient Joseph Johnstone through hospital stays and trips down memory lane to moments of his past.

Schraffenberger’s work has also appeared in several other titles including “Best Creative Nonfiction,” the “Mid-American Review” and more.

The free event will be at 2 p.m. and light refreshments will be served.

The home, located at 603 South Fifth Street in Springfield, was built about 1850. Poet, author and artist Nicholas Vachel Lindsay was born there in 1879 and died there in 1931.
