Mark Munger Discusses His Two Finland Themed Novels.

Book Talk with Mark Munger
Waverley Resource Library Auditorium
Friday 24th June 2 - 4 pm


Wonderful reviews have followed Marc Munger's two Finnish themed novels, Suomalaiset: People of the Marsh, set in Duluth, Ontario and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan during the labour unrest of the early 1900's.

It's sequel, Sukulaiset: The Kindred, depicts the reverse migration of the Finns from the US and Canada during the 1920's and 1930's to Karelia as well as the turmoil experience in Finland during WWII and its aftermath,.

Both books are big, bold historical novels that have received international attention.

Munger, a NOWW member and author from Duluth, will read from and discuss these books at the Waverley Library in the Auditorium on Friday June 24, from 2 - 4 pm.
