The Waters of Michigan” is the Great Lakes State’s member of a new list called Great Lakes Reads.

Photographer David Lubbers and I collaborated on the project, but photographs carry a coffee table book, and that’s what this is.  David’s brilliant photos are the heart of this book.

Great Lakes Reads is a project of the Great Lakes state Centers for the Book: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, with participation by the Ontario Book Publishers Organization.

Books for the “Great Lakes Reads” list were selected by each state, and province, that borders a Great Lake. The chosen works, all by authors either from or residing in each location, highlight the state’s relationship with its lake and the communities surrounding it. Download the free bookmark and poster.
