Mary Casanova book reading and signing at Drury Lane Saturday

Thu, 08/25/2016 - 11:39am

Author Mary Casanova will read from and sign copies of her two newest books, Wake Up, Island and Ice-Out at 5 p.m. Aug. 27 at Drury Lane Books (12 E. Wisconsin St.) in Grand Marais.

Mary Casanova is the author of more than 30 books for young readers, ranging from picture books, such as Utterly Otterly Night and Wake Up, Island to novels such as Moose Tracks and Frozen. Her books are on m any state reading lists and have earned the American Library Association Notable Award, Aesop Accolades from the American Folklore Society, Parents’ Choice Gold Award, Booklist Editors’ Choice, as well as two Minnesota Book Awards. She speaks frequently around the country at readings and library conferences.

As Wake Up, Island gently rouses the sleepy child, it summons a world of nature coming to life on a summer island in the magical North Woods. Conjuring the morning life around a cabin fragrant with berry pancakes, this timeless book wakens the child in every reader to the wonders of nature that greet every new day in the charmed world of a northern woodland island.

Ice-Out returns to the Prohibition-era borderland of Mary Casanova’s beloved novel Frozen, and to the characters who made it a favorite among readers of all ages. Inspired by real events in early 1920s Minnesota, it is a story of young romance against terrible odds and true grit on the border between license and responsibility, rich and poor, and right and wrong.

The author lives with her husband and dogs in a turn-of-the-century house in Ranier, Minnesota, perched on the Canadian border.
