Author Jerry Dennis Discusses His New Book "The Windward Shore "

Thursday November 3, 2011: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Award-winning Michigan author Jerry Dennis reads from and discusses his powerful and insightful new book "The Windward Shore" which centers on winter in Great Lakes country. This event includes a book signing and books will be on sale.

In this just-released book, Dennis, grounded by a knee injury, learns to live at a slower pace while staying in houses ranging from a log cabin on Lake Superior's Keweenaw Peninsula to a $20-million mansion on the northern shore of Lake Michigan. Walking beaches and exploring nearby woods and villages, he muses on the future of the Great Lakes, the nature of time, weather, waves, agates, books, words for snow and ice, our complex relationship with nature, and much more.
