Author Erich Mische

The non-profit Executive Director who took a leaky homemade raft down the Mississippi River from St. Paul, Minnesota to Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 2020 has published a book detailing his dangerous journey to keep his organization afloat and has embarked upon a 10-state book tour to promote it. Erich Mische, author and Executive Director of the non profit Spare Key will be in town for a meet and greet for his book, “Hope On The River: An Unlikely Captain’s 1700-Mile Mississippi River Journey On A Leaky Raft To Save His NonProft”.

In 2020, Spare Key, like nearly every non-profit in America, was in danger of closing its doors because of the economic impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Its Executive Director decided to journey down the Mississippi River in a desperate attempt to raise funds and awareness for the organization to keep it afloat. One year after his trip, Mische has written and published a book and is on a 10-state book to promote it and Spare Key and its www.HelpMeBounce.org platform to support families facing a medical crisis avoid adding a financial crisis to their lives.

The book signing event will take place at the Keokuk Yacht Club, 2029 River Rd, Keokuk, IA , Monday August 30th from 4-5pm.
