Idaho Talks: Finnish Steps to Valley County with Floyd Loomis

Jun 27, 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Local author F.A. (Floyd) Loomis will take a look at the Finnish migration to Idaho from various stepping points in Finland and across the U.S. His Finnish wife—Kristin
Koskella—was the inspiration for several historical works, such as Ladies with Sisu, A Brief History of the Long Valley Finnish Ladies’ Aid. Floyd has also written novels
Frankie Ravan, Ravan’s Winter, and Confluence of Spirit (an Idaho trilogy), as well as Blue Duwamish, No End in Sight, and The Attic Thief. His short story volumes include A Run of Garnets & Other Idaho Tales, The Rose and Other Urban Stories, and 60 Minute Stories. Poetry chapbooks are Salmon River Lookout, Gold Fork Dreams, and East West West East. His first book was As Long As Life, The Memoirs of a Frontier Woman Doctor, a book that was among sources used for the TV series Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Floyd has two Master’s degrees from Yale Univ. and a Bachelor’s degree from the Univ. of Washington in Seattle. He enjoys spending time with his wife Kristin and daughters Amanda and Kathirine, and their giant schnauzer Cozette. He is also a woodworker who specializes in Craftsman style furniture.


Talks are held at the Central Idaho Historical Museum’s Carpenter Shop. Learn more on the McCall Arts and Humanities Council Website
