Event Description

Making the Carry is an extraordinary illustrated biography of a Métis man and Anishinaabe woman navigating great changes in their homeland along the U.S.-Canada border in the early twentieth century.

John Linklater, of Anishinaabeg, Cree, and Scottish ancestry, and his wife, Tchi-Ki-Wis, of the Lac La Croix First Nation, lived in the canoe and border country of Ontario and Minnesota from the 1870s until the 1930s. During that time, the couple experienced radical upheavals in the Quetico-Superior region, including the cutting of white and red pine forests, the creation of Indian reserves/reservations and conservation areas, and the rise of towns, tourism, and mining. With broad geographical sweep, historical significance, and biographical depth, Making the Carry tells their story, overlooked for far too long.

The North Shore of Lake Superior and our region are home to many great authors and stories. Local history, murder mysteries, poetry, historical fiction, Native Ojibwe stories, and more! At our events, the author reads from her/his book, discuss the writing process, and takes questions from the audience. Meet your favorite authors and get a signed book.

*Please call in advance for cancellations due to weather.

Doors open at 5:45 pm
