Last chance for signed ‘Overburden’ in 2009

Have you finished your Christmas shopping? I’ll be signing copies of my book “Overburden: Modern Life on the Iron Range” at the Village Bookstore in the Central Square Mall in Grand Rapids on Saturday, Dec. 19 from noon to 2 p.m. The book makes a great gift for anyone interested in or befuddled by the Iron Range, anyone under the age of 40 who finds themselves in a parochial town, and anyone who enjoys a fresh take on the past, present and future of a wholly unique place.

Hey, you’ve been working hard. Maybe it could be a gift for you.

“Overburden” won the Northeastern Minnesota Book Award earlier this year and has received many fine notices in an unusual mix of publications. This will probably be my last “Overburden” event for some time as I continue work on some new projects.

I hope to see you Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. in Grand Rapids.


  1. Bought it for my mother-in-law in California. Would have bought it for my mother too, but she bought it herself before I could. Caught her laughing out loud several times.
