Book Release: A Long Road There

Spokane resident Virginia Pickett's "A Long Road There" chronicles the immigrant journey of Magdalena Mok, a young woman whose restless, yearning and independent spirit guided her from Germany, across the Atlantic, to America. While Magdalena is the great-grandmother of the author, Pickett as a novelist imagines the vibrant details of Mok’s audacious journey. Accompanying Magdalena is a colorful cast of characters, from a rodent stowaway on the SS See Falke to her plucky and determined travel companion Rosa.
