Swedish author Maria Bouroncle will join the Swedish Historical Society of Rockford on October 6, as well as the Bishop Hill Heritage Association in Illinois on October 14 to talk about her book It Came to Me on a Whim.




Burleith resident, Maria Bouroncle was born in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1965 and spent the summers, until she was eight, with her grandparents and her Aunt Ingeborg in a small village called Molla. She remembers her Aunt Ingeborg with love, a chubby older woman who enjoyed playing cards, making cakes, weaving, and biking.
