Author Visit: Marnie Mamminga

Kimberly Public Library
Marnie Mamminga

Author Marnie Mamminga visits our library as part of the 2014 Fox Cities Book Festival. Her book, Return to Wake Robin: One Cabin in the Heyday of Northwoods Resorts, takes us to Wake Robin, the cabin her grandparents built in 1929 on Big Spider Lake near Hayward. Along the way she preserves the spirit and cultural heritage of a vanishing era.

In this presentation, Marnie Mamminga takes us behind the scenes of her popular memoir: Return to Wake Robin.
Speaking as a kind of literary fishing guide, she rows us into the backwaters to explore the cabin, lodge, family traditions, and the lake changes and writing challenges that inspired her to persevere in capturing a bygone era. Come along for the ride!
