The Arrowhead Library System and Hibbing Public Library are bringing the Minnesota Author of Vacationland, Sarah Stonich to our area:
- Hibbing Public Library, Tuesday, May 14, 2013 at 12:00 p.m.
At the heart of her book Vacationland is Naledi Lodge, inspired by those rustic Mom & Pop resorts now disappearing along with their big fish, bad mattresses, wood docks, flashlight trots to the outhouse, bear-fear, and bonfires. Up north vacations might not always live up to the brochures versions of canoe paddling under pine-scented skies; in the fine print of rusted beer cans on the trail or a barbed hook through a thumb lies a more realistic picture of Vacationland.
Vacationland is published by The University of Minnesota Press.
Sarah’s first novel, These Granite Islands was translated into eight languages and won numerous awards and was Barnes & Noble Discover New Writers pick. The author originally from Duluth, now makes her home in Minneapolis with her husband Jon and spends summers on a small lake in Northern St. Louis County.
This event is sponsored by the Arrowhead Library System and funded by money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
Check out Vacationland at the library and meet the author on May 14th.
