The Mason House Launch Party

September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us as we celebrate the publication of T. Marie Bertineau’s The Mason House with a virtual launch party! This event will begin with a short reading from the memoir followed by a Q&A session with the author.
ABOUT THE BOOK
After her father’s untimely death, Theresa faced a rocky and unstable childhood. But there was one place she felt safe: her grandmother’s house in Mason, a depressed former copper mining town in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
Gram’s passing leaves Theresa once again at the mercy of the lasting, sometimes destructive grief of her Ojibwe mother and white stepfather. As the family travels back and forth across the country in search of a better life, one thing becomes clear: if they want to find peace, they will need to return to their roots.
THE MASON HOUSE is at once an elegy for lost loved ones and a tale of growing up amid hardship and hope, exploring how time and the support of a community can at last begin to heal even the deepest wounds.
