BIG ANNIE AND HER TEN FOOT FLAG

DSCN2914Memories of my trip to Michigan continue to warm my heart as friends I met in the Keweenaw Peninsula send me pictures and beautiful comments about my books.

This picture is of the exhibit Joanne Thomas created about Annie Clemenc for the centennial year of the copper strike. It is in the Copperdom Museum in Calumet. I met this engaging woman the day I was there. Like so many devoted to Annie’s valiant efforts to bring fair labor practices to the copper mining industry, Joanne has lovingly researched and created this exhibit to share with locals and tourists alike.
