During a Christmas Party in the Italian Hall in Calumet, Michigan, 1913, someone shouted "Fire!" A panic ensued and 58 children and 15 adults were crushed to death in a staircase while trying to escape. Only, there was no fire.
Had the mining companies planned the panic to get revenge on the striking miners? Deborah Frontiera explores that tragic and confusing year through the eyes of twelve-year old Emma Niemi, whose father joins the striking miners. Written in diary form, this novel resonates today with family values, hard work, and questions of right and wrong. Older children and adults will both find it fascinating. But what is Sisu? You'll have to read the book to find out.
