Sunday, March 27, 6 p.m.
Discussion location: Zoom
We’ll discuss Mary Doria Russell’s novel “The Women of the Copper Country,” a work of historical fiction based on the true story of a woman who led a copper miners’ strike in Calumet, Michigan in 1913. It’s an authentic look into the lives of people involved in the early labor movement in the U.S.
The book is available at Horizon Books for a 10% discount if you inform the staff you are a member of the G.T. Humanist Book Club (20% if you are also a Horizon bookstore member).
The Peninsula Community Library will also host its own discussion of the book on February 28 at 6:30, in person at the library at 2893 Island View Road in Traverse City. After the discussion, they will show the PBS film, “Red Metal; The Copper Country Strike of 1913.” For more information call 231-223-7700.
If you want to learn more, the Traverse City National Writers Series hosted a discussion with Mary Doria Russell in 2021, and the radio broadcast can be streamed here.
