Bite-sized memories and adventures written on a weekly basis come together in “Meander North,” a blog-memoir by Minnesota author Marie Zhuikov. Collected over nine years on Zhuikov’s “Marie’s Meanderings” blog, the 51 quirky essays, arranged by season, cover a wide range of outdoorsy and community-based reflections.

The book also contains new material that began as blog posts but then morphed into writing contest submissions or magazine articles. Although the topics are diverse, all display Zhuikov’s love for her home state.

“Meander North” is a celebration of Minnesota, its seasons and traditions. In 2023, it earned a silver award in the nature category from the Midwest Independent Publishers Assn.
