Author: Marnie Mamminga

The Afternoon Book Club will be reading Return to Wake Robin: One Cabin in the Heyday of Northwoods Resorts by Marnie O. Mamminga. Five generations of Mamminga's family have been rejuvenated by times together in Wisconsin's Northwoods. In a series of evocative remembrances accompanied by a treasure trove of vintage family photos, Mamminga takes us to Wake Robin, the cabin her grandparents built in 1929 on Big Spider Lake near Hayward, on land adjacent to Moody's Camp. Along the way she preserves the spirit and cultural heritage of a vanishing era, conveying the heart of a place and the community that gathered there. Mamminga will be visiting the Kimberly Library on Thursday, April 10 at 4:00PM as part of the Fox Cities Book Festival. Read the book and join in the discussion on Thursday, March 13 at 1:00PM at the Kimberly Library, then come to meet the author in person in April.
