Below are the details of the event launching the new book exploring Duluth's past, "Lost Duluth," by Maryanne C. Norton and Tony Dierckins. I had the pleasure of reading several chapters as the book was being prepared and, trust me, it's fascinating. Pictures and narrative on scores of Duluth buildings that have been razed over the years. Lost forever.
Concurrently with the book launch, Dierckins, whose previous publishing imprint (X-Comm) put out my book, "Cooler Near the Lake," is launching a new on-line magazine he's calling "Zenith City Online," described as "An online resource celebrating historic Duluth, Western Lake Superior and Minnesota's Arrowhead." I will be writing a column for Zenith City Online, focusing mainly on the history of Duluth's western precincts, where I grew up. Find out more about this new free online magazine HERE. Dierckins' publishing company (X-Comm) will change gears on May 1 as well and become Zenith City Press.
I'll be at the launch event; all are invited; hope to see some of you there. Details are below.
