    1. Do You Remember 1969?Cinnamon Girl, a novel by Lawrence Kessenich published by North Star Press of St. Cloud, Inc 2016, $15.Reviewed by Christina ZawadiwskyLawrence Kessenich has a voice smooth as silk or fine brandy, and when I heard him reading from his newly published novel Cinnamon Girl at Boswell Books about the city of Milwaukee during the Hippie period of rebellion and a new way of living (the dawning of the age of Aquarius) his words came alive for everyone in the room. Whether writing a [...]

    2. Milwaukee’s East Side, 1969. John lives the hippie life of the time, argues with his conservative dad, gets involved in anti-war protests and falls in love with a girl whose freckles sprinkled like cinnamon. A coming-of-age story. The year-long party ends when national guards shoot four students on campus at Kent. Santana, Joe Cocker and Joan Baez music plays on the radio and on record players during this story but no mention of Bob Dylan. Neil Young’s “Cinnamon Girl” plays a role for in [...]

    3. I savored every minute of Cinnamon Girl, having started it not long after the 2016 election, which horrified me and filled me with anguish. Cinnamon Girl was a terrific antidote: A vivid and engaging tale that allowed me to hang out with 1960s hippies, protest the Vietnam war and pointless laws generally, and listen to the music of that era. This is a sensual book with a lovable narrator who doesn't shy away from his own foolishness or wisdom.

    4. I usually love books by Wisconsin authors. I through I would enjoy it, based on its subject matter and time frame. I just did not grab me.

    5. Cinnamon Girl, the debut novel from award winning poet and playwright, Lawrence Kessenich, is a poignant and compelling story about a young man and his group of friends as they come of age in the American midwest during the height of the Vietnam War era.John Meyer, a student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, is fighting his own war on an asymmetrical front. He is in the process of leaving the halcyon days and secure cocoon of his conservative suburban family. Meyer questions his entire b [...]

    6. Familiar as I am with much of the author's other works, I was not surprised that the dialogue in this novel was natural, entertaining, and profound. Nor was I shocked to find the descriptions so beautiful and evocative (though I did not expect how perfect a sense of the place and time the novel gave me, making an era 15 years before my birth seem clear before my mind's eye).What did surprise me - because it happens to me much more rarely with adult fiction - was how totally I was drawn into this [...]

    7. Cinnamon Girl is a wonderful novel: action packed, funny, thoughtful and very readable. The characters are lively and the decisions they must make are ones that will affect their whole lives. Cinnamon Girl takes place during the first anti-Vietnam War protests at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. A student, still living at home, is swept up in historic times and his entire belief system is challenged. He finds friends, finds love and he loses that love. There is no sugar coating here: th [...]

    8. This book hits close to the bone, or the heart, or wherever it is we feel most vulnerable. It is excruciating to see the whole messy self-serving loving righteous humorous and dangerous way we are with each other – with such exacting clarity. I felt like I became a bigger person by experiencing the range and nuance of feeling as it unfolds between characters. The dialogue is pitch perfect and the characters so vivid, this particular place and time become universal. Beautifully, satisfyingly do [...]

    9. I have no idea why I finished this book. I like to read books by local authors, with a WI connection, or set in WI, so that's why it was on my list. I attended UWM as an undergrad and lived on the East side. That's about where my connection to this book ended. I guess it was supposed to be a coming of age tale, but it came across as my mom waxing poetic about the glory days. I found it dull and was unable to engage despite sticking through until the end.

    10. It was a good read. It kept me waxing nostalgic. The main character pulled me in, through detailed visual and emotional descriptions, to an era when all change was possible, not only for society, but through love for another.

    11. Yeah, I was there too. But that doesn't make me a groupie of the author. This is a really weak book and might get a C in a creative writing class. (What do you think, Tom Bontly?)
