Copper Empire A Novel about the Copper Country Labor Strike in 1913

Copper Empire

I am giving several historical presentations at U.P. libraries next week.  Come and learn more about the 1913 copper mining labor strike and how it led to a tragedy on Christmas Eve in Michigan’s Copper Country.  This is a 40 minute PowerPoint presentation with a book signing to follow.  I will be selling my book, Copper Empire and my grandfather’s book, Wild Empire (both historical fiction).

  1. Thank you Victor, and thanks to Donna. I wish her much success. What’s the possibility of getting a few of we UPPAA authors together in Marquette for an evening of fun and friendly conversation for us all to enjoy? Perhaps a happy hour gathering at one of your favorite places would be nice. Sue and I would love to spend a few days in Marquette, and it would be great to visit with all of you again. What say you? -Kim
