There are a cluster of events in the U.P. in late May/early June, another cluster near Traverse City in June, and one more Michigan event at local libraries in September.

 

The author is really looking forward to all of these – The Marsh King’s Daughter is being read all over the world (!!!), but Michigan readers connect with the story on a deeper level because they bring their own experiences and love of the state to the book.
