Swedish American Portraits

My son, Stephan, and I are working on a new nonfiction book, Portraits of Swedish Americans, based on my husband's interviews and portraits taken by him across North America. My Christer has scanned the pictures in high resolution, Stephan is the illustrator and I am writing the texts. It will be fabulous!

Reader's review of Katrin, almost American

Dear Lilly,

I just finished reading Katrin, almost American and just loved it. I hope a movie will be made from it. What an information and loving story. My sister, Nancy, bought it from you at Bishop Hill for me at Christmas. Thank you for your note in it. 

She included information about her father who came to Nebraska in 1920 with his parents and says that she has been to Sweden several times and has seen where he was born and baptized...

She finished her letter with these words:  I loved visiting Sweden. I plan to get some of your other books.
