This fall, we're bringing you books about the Northland, from the Northland and by Northland authors. The Northeastern Minnesota Book Awards - NEMBA - were established in 1988 to recognize books that "substantially represent northeastern Minnesota in the areas of history, culture, heritage, or lifestyle."
Our guest is Ann M Lewis. Her book Ship Captain's Daughter: Growing Up on the Great Lakes [Wisconsin Historical Society Press] was nominated for a 2016 NEMBA award, and received an honorable mention in the memoir category.
Minnesota Reads is produced at KUMD with funding provided in part by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
