Book Release Party: Yooper Talk!

Yooper TalkSave the date! The Bookman is pleased to host a book release party for Yooper Talk by Kathryn Remlinger!

Join us on Saturday, August 19 from 11:00 to 1:00! Kathryn will present her book, and do a signing.

Yooper Talk is a fresh and significant contribution to understanding regional language and culture in North America. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan--known as "the UP"--is historically, geographically, and culturally distinct. Struggles over land, labor, and language during the last 150 years have shaped the variety of English spoken by resident Yoopers, as well as how they are viewed by outsiders.

Stop into The Bookman and pick up your copy, and be sure to join Kathryn for the signing and talk, which are sure to be interesting and leave you thinking more deeply about our remarkable state.
