Breakfast Club – Coffee with Marilyn June 12


The Stearns Museum and Research Center invites you to breakfast with Marilyn Salzl Brinkman 9 a.m. Wednesday, June 12. Many of you know Marilyn already, and many more of you know her work. She has shared many of her stories in books and articles. Growing up in central Minnesota on a farm with 14 brothers and sisters, and her lifetime in and around Stearns County have afforded Marilyn many experiences to write about. Her keen eye and warm wit have turned those experiences into great stories.

Her latest book, “Aprons, Flower Sacks & Other Folk Histories”, offers a collection of articles most of which appeared initially in the St. Cloud Times. Here gathered together, the articles add up to a significant contribution to the folk history of central Minnesota.

No doubt, her stories will spark a memory and your own stories, too. It will seem like having coffee with a longtime friend. For members, admittance is free, non-members are $5

The American Alliance of Museums accredits the Stearns History Museum and Research Center. It is located at 235 33rd Avenue South in St. Cloud.
