Made the news

A reporter from Beacon News, Aurora, interviewed me while I was signing books at the Gift Box in Geneva, IL June 21st. Two days later, she included me in an article about the Swedish Days in Geneva and featured my latest book, Katrin, Almost American, a Swedish-American immigration novel from the 1920s. She also wrote that I stayed in America to preserve my husband's legacy, and I appreciate that very much. (Denise Linke, Beacon News, June 23, 2017.)
