'Return to Wake Robin: One Cabin in the Heyday of Northwoods Resorts' Book Signing in Hayward
The raucous family car rides, the call of the weekly square dance, the splash announcing a perfectly executed cannonball, all are familiar sounds during the summer at lake resorts and cabins. In 'Return to Wake Robin: One Cabin in the Heyday of Northwoods Resorts,'
Marnie O. Mamminga takes us to the cabin her grandparents built in 1929 on Big Spider Lake near Hayward. By tracing the history of one resort and cabin, she recalls a time and experience that will resonate with anyone who spent their summers "Up North" — or wishes they had.
Author Marnie Mamminga will be outside Book World in Hayward on both Friday, June 22, and Saturday, June 23, to sign copies of "Return to Wake Robin." Her signing will be during Hayward's annual Musky Festival.
Marnie O. Mamminga has vacationed every summer on Big Spider Lake near Hayward. Born and raised in the Chicago area, she attended the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, where she earned undergraduate and master's degrees in English. Her publishing credits include the "Chicago Tribune," "Reader's Digest," the "Christian Science Monitor," "Lake Superior Magazine" and several "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books. She has been married to her high school sweetheart for more than 40 years and is so very grateful that her grandchildren love the Northwoods as much as she does.
