Christine Saari to give reading, book signing March 15 at Community Arts Center

HANCOCK -- The Copper Country Community Arts Center will host a reading and book signing by Christine Saari at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 15. Saari will read from her book Love and War at Stag Farm: the Story of Hirschengut, an Austrian Mountain Farm, 1938-1948.

Join author Christine Saari, as she shares excerpts from her compelling story about a farmhouse in the foothills of the Austrian Alps during the pivotal years of WWII and the people and events of this shattering time who bring the story alive.

Christine Saari is a writer and visual artist. After completing her studies of English and German in Austria she emigrated to the United States (1964). She has been living in the Upper Peninsula since 1971 and spends spring time at the Austrian family farm, which is now in the hands of her sons. She has established a gallery there to hold her "Family Album" collection which tells the story of her family, a visual counterpart to her book.

The Copper Country Community Arts Center is at 126 Quincy St., Hancock. Call 906-482-2333 for more information.
