Clark Lake’s Laurie LaZebnik was interviewed this morning (Friday, 7/1/16) on a Saginaw-Bay City-Midland radio station.  She told WSGW’s Art Lewis about what motivated her to write the book Minnie’s Potatoes. You can listen to the interview on this major Michigan radio station here.

Laurie on dockA significant portion of this historical novel takes place during the lumberjack days in Michigan.  WSGW covers a large part of northern Michigan, including Standish, where a lot of the action in Laurie’s book takes place.  Laurie will talk about her book in Standish on July 10–first to family at 2 pm, and then to the community at large at 4 pm.

If you didn’t listen, you wouldn’t know that Laurie’s great-grandmother was a bootlegger and ran a profitable family business when alcohol was banned in Michigan.

Minnie’s Potatoes is available at Doyle’s on Hyde Road and also on line at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Laurie, and her husband Bob, live on Kentucky Point.
