Books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that have the Great Lakes as subject matters or as settings will be discussed with a facilitator from Write On. The group will meet at 10:30 am on the first Thursday of each month at the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay. If you would like to participate in the Great Lakes/Great Books Club, call the museum at 920-743-5958.
This month’s selection is Door Ways by Norbert Blei.
“Someday [Blei’s] Door County will join the great mythical-real landscapes that include Salinas, Spoon River, and Yoknapatawpha.” —Harry Mark Petrakis
Weaving a tapestry of lives and landscapes, past and present, earth and water, Norbert Blei celebrates the unique heritage of Door County, Wisconsin, a spectacular peninsula reaching into Lake Michigan. Blei ponders the balance of nature in a place where locals, tourists, and developers vie with the native flora and fauna of forests and lakeshore.
