Event Description
Mary Doria Russell will discuss her book, The Women of the Copper Country. This is the story of a 25-year-old Anna Clemenc who bravely stood up for striking miners and their families in 1913, and offers a historical look at the early labor movement and copper mining in Calumet, Michigan. Widely praised for meticulous research, fine prose, and the compelling narrative drive of her stories, Mary Doria Russell is the award-winning author of seven bestselling novels. The Women of the Copper Country has been chosen as a Great Michigan Read by Michigan Humanities
