Read Aloud with Tim Cochrane

Meet some characters from the draft manuscript of The Mystery of Mary Bruneau: and Other Untold Isle Royale Stories

Tim Cochrane, local author of Making the Carry: The Lives of John and Tchi-Ki-Wis Linklater (2022 U of Minn. Press), will join the Grand Marais Public Library for a read aloud of The Mystery of Mary Bruneau: and Other Untold Isle Royale Stories. The event will take place on December 15th, from 6 pm to 7:30. 

Tim has recently submitted this draft for publication at The University of Minnesota Press, and is excited to debut excerpts with our community about the forgotten people and events at Isle Royale in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Linda LeGarde Grover, author of Gichigami Hearts: Stories and Histories from Misaabekong, has described Cochrane's Making the Carry as "well researched and touching."

For the program, Mr. Cochrane will explain the overall context of the book and read about a few interesting folks from his research. He will also set aside time for questions from the audience, so come and immerse yourself in a past that we risk losing our forebears in forever, if not for storytellers like Tim Cochrane.

Free and open to the public. All ages. Come early for closest seating. Beverages with lids are welcome.
