The Women of the Copper Country – Book Discussion
Dive into a mesmeric novel, ‘The Women of the Copper Country’ by Mary Doria Russell, and become immersed in a story that tells of the obstacles and endeavors of Annie Clements, America’s very own “Joan of Arc.”
This fictionalized yet historical account shares the journey of a woman who daringly led a strike against a powerful mining company in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, during the early labor movement. Muskegon Museum of History & Science and Hackley Public Library are teaming together for this Great Michigan Read 2022 book discussion! Free copies of the book are available at either location (while supplies last). Please register for this discussion on the online event calendar at hackleylibrary.org. Free.
