Paula’s Book Release
One of the exciting things about blogging is the sudden windows into other people’s lives and backgrounds far away from yourself. The internet brings us so close together, and it is like we get to really “know” each other.
With Paula Pederson, I almost feel we are family. Her father was a great builder of Seattle, and he died when Paula was one month old. She was never told stories about him, so she has researched his life and is publishing a book about her findings. I had a father’s uncle who immigrated to Seattle too and lived there at the time of Hans Pederson. They may well have known each other as there was a flourishing Danish colony at the time.
Hans Pederson immigrated from Denmark in 1884 and managed to work himself up from a day worker to a building contractor of the West.
I have borrowed Paula’s book cover to make a small advertisement for her upcoming event. If you would keep an eye on her blog, the date will be revealed at that place.
I am looking forward to reading this book. Stevie Turner, a blogging friend from England, wrote a post about a web page that helps authors to collect their books for others to see and follow.
