Bertineau featured author at NWB Independent Bookstore Day event

April 19, 2021
April 24 is Independent Bookstore Day. Join North Wind Books for an outdoor author event featuring author of The Mason HouseT. Marie Bertineau.

After her father’s untimely death, Theresa faced a rocky and unstable childhood. But there was one place she felt safe: her grandmother’s house in Mason, a depressed former copper mining town in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Gram’s passing leaves Theresa once again at the mercy of the lasting, sometimes destructive grief of her Ojibwe mother and white stepfather. As the family travels back and forth across the country in search of a better life, one thing becomes clear: if they want to find peace, they will need to return to their roots.

The Mason House is at once an elegy for lost loved ones and a tale of growing up amid hardship and hope, exploring how time and the support of a community can at last begin to heal even the deepest wounds.

T. Marie Bertineau will be signing copies of The Mason House, a 2021 Michigan Notable Book, Saturday April 24th from 11-1:30.

Attendees are reminded that masks are required, follow social distancing guidelines & stay home if they are feeling unwell.
