The next meeting of the Great Lakes/Great Books Club is Dec. 7, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. The group is a collaboration between Write On, Door County and the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay, where meetings are held.
Great Lakes/Great Books Club is a monthly book club discussing works of fiction, nonfiction and poetry that have the Great Lakes as a setting or as subject matter. December’s selection is The Living Great Lakes by Jerry Dennis.
The Living Great Lakes is one of the most complete books ever written about the history, nature and science of these remarkable lakes at the heart of North America. From the geological forces that formed them to the industrial atrocities that nearly destroyed them, to the greatest environmental success stories of our time, the lakes are portrayed in all their complexity. The book, however, is much more than just history. It is also the story of the lakes as told by biologists, fishermen, sailors, and others whom the author grew to know while traveling with them on boats and hiking with them on beaches and islands.
