The Way North: Collected UP New Works Presentation

October 29th, 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM


Description: To celebrate the publication of this year's compilation, The Way North: Collected Upper Peninsula New Works edited by Ron Riekki, a selection of the participating authors from the Eastern Upper Peninsula will read their work at this special event. LSSU and Bayliss are co-sponsoring the event. Seven area authors are participating in the program, including poets and LSSU professors Julie Brooks Barbour, Eric Gadzinski, and Mary McMyne, who will read from their work. In addition, fiction writers Ellen Airgood of Grand Marais, Sue Harrison of Pickford, L.E. Kimball of Newberry, and LSSU Prof. Janice Repka will read excerpts of their short stories. Harrison is the recipient of the LSSU Outstanding Alumna Award, former LSSU staffer, and former member of the LSSU Board of Trustees. After their readings, the authors will field questions and discuss their involvement with The Way North and the past several years of U.P. Author Tours that led to its publication. Barnes & Noble LSSU will provide The Way North and other books by the participating authors for sale and signing. The Friends of Bayliss Library will provide refreshments. Everyone is welcome.
