Victoria E. Wolf Recording Booth

Victoria E. Wolf Recording Booth

In 2019, Great Lakes Talking Books purchased a recording booth using funds donated by the Victoria E. Wolf estate with the goal to record books written by local authors and/or about the Upper Peninsula. The booth has been installed in the Peter White Public Library and will be available for public use in 2021. Equipment and
furnishings were funded by the Jim Armstrong Memorial and Eunice Vandecaveye.

About our narrators:

Marquette native Mark Hamari co-owns Marquette Wallpaper & Paint with his brother Darryl. He is a member of several local bands including The Union Suits and the Marquette Rockestra. He lives in
town with his wife T. and their dog Taika. He hopes people enjoy listening to the books as much as he enjoys narrating them.

Kelsey Boldt is the librarian at the Ishpeming Carnegie Public Library. Naturally, she enjoys reading in her spare time, but also loves writing, filmmaking, and the outdoors.
