The Arrowhead Library System is pleased to present WATERFALL Book Launch – A Webinar with Mary Casanova on Thursday, April 8, 7-8 p.m.  This online event via Zoom will be moderated by Margi Preus and is free and open to the public.

Join Minnesota author Mary Casanova for a virtual book launch of her new historical novel, Waterfall, set on Rainy Lake in northern Minnesota in 1922. Informed by historical figures, by the burgeoning growth of women’s rights in the early twentieth century, and the complicated issue of mental illness and how “difficult” women were silenced, Waterfall offers a compelling story of a young woman’s fight to find her way.  This title is aimed at adults and is a recommended crossover for older teens.

Casanova is the author of thirty-nine books, ranging from picture books to historical fiction, including Hush, Hush Forest; Frozen; and Ice-Out, published by the University of Minnesota Press. Her numerous awards include an American Library Association “Notable,” Aesop Accolades from the American Folklore Society, a Parent’s Choice Gold Award, Booklist Editor’s Choice, as well as two Minnesota Book Awards.
