Great Lakes Book Club Begins

Write On, Door County is partnering with the Door County Maritime Museum to present Great Lakes/Great Books, a monthly book club featuring books with a Great Lakes focus.

Books of fiction, nonfiction and poetry that have the Great Lakes as subject matter or as settings will be discussed with a facilitator from Write On. A complete list was made available at the first meeting on Nov. 6 at the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay. The group will continue to meet at 10:30 am the first Thursday of each month at the museum. Those dates are Dec. 4, Jan. 8, Feb. 5, March 5, April 2 and May 7.

The following is a proposed book list that is subject to change: Dec. – The Living Great Lakes by Jerry Dennis; Jan. – The Long-Shining Waters by Danielle Sosin; Feb. – The Coast of Michigan by Stuart Dybek; March – Cold Comfort by Barton Sutter; April – Uncoded Woman: Poems by Anne-Marie Oomen; and May – In the Skin of a Lion by Michael Ondaatje.
