On Saturday, December 15 at 10:00am at the Pine City Public Library listen as Minnesota author, Ann Zemke, talks about her grandmother’s orphan train story and her book, “They Named Me Marjorie”. In 1972 Ann took a quilt making class offered by her local community education department. Quilting sparked her creativity and she decided to tell her grandmother’s story with a quilt. Ann has handcrafted over 150 unique quilts since that class in 1972.

Come listen to her grandmother’s story of being taken off the orphan train in 1906 and becoming an indentured servant along with lots of other girls. Ms. Zemke’s visit is funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
