Michigan Authors on Tour

Getting underway this month and continuing into the fall is a Michigan/U.P. author tour that will feature a whole bunch of Michigan's wonderful writers (including many who are in the new book Here: Women Writing on Michigan's Upper Peninsula).  I wanted to pass on word about these Michigan writers and their events, the first of which is tomorrow.  I'll post updates as I receive them.  Ron Riekki, editor of Here, is coordinating the tour and has assembled a great group.  I hope you'll go hear some of these writers talk about their work!
