Charles “Chuck” Evenson

Charles “Chuck” Evenson spent his career in marketing and communications. He grew up in Baraboo and now lives with his wife, Lois, in Madison, Wisconsin.

His first book is based loosely on memorable family experiences from his many trips to Door County.

Chuck first visited Door County with his family as a young boy. He says, “The impact of that initial trip must have made a big impression on me because I still feel it today.”

Chuck is passionate about Door County and dedicated to preserving its unique environment and laid-back character. He belongs to several groups devoted to environmental preservation there.

One of his favorite activities is helping his grandchildren discover wonderful things about Door County. While he claims to know a lot about it, he admits, “I’m not a true Door County expert but maybe a gifted amateur with a lifetime of experiences there.”
