northern comfort smallerPlease join us in celebrating Jodi Schwen’s new book Northern Comfort: The Musings of Jacqueline Pine Savage, on Thursday, June 12 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Q Gallery in Brainerd. The Q Gallery is located in the Franklin Art Center, 1001 Kingwood Street Room #222.
Using the pen name of “Jacqueline Pine Savage” has allowed Jodi Schwen to protect the innocent while writing about life up north. Some call it “outstate” or the “boondocks”—Jacqueline Pine Savage calls it home. Either way, living in a rural community means finding the humor in north-woods living. In Northern Comfort: The Musings of Jacqueline Pine Savage, enjoy the sacred holidays of hunting and fishing seasons, family bonding when the dogs get “skunked,” and how to politely refuse the house tour when guests come a-calling.

“Northern Comfort is a lively little volume of Minnesota Lake Country wit and wisdom, from a feminine point of view. From panty-hose, rock-salt, ice-dam breakers; to sweater-vest-wearing leeches in the back of the fridge—if you’re from Minnesota you’ll find something here to make you smile or chuckle or laugh out loud. And if you’re not from Minnesota, you’ll wish you were.”- Douglas Wood, Author of 32 books, including Old Turtle and Fawn Island.

“Bringing the down-low from up north, Jodi Schwen writes like Minnesota sounds. It’s like eavesdropping on a coffee klatch in a small-town cafe.”-Peter Smith, Minnesota Public Radio commentator/essayist and author
