UP Authors at Grandpa’s Barn

It’s time to celebrate the art of books at Grandpa’s Barn during Copper Harbor’s annual Art in the Park this weekend.

Grandpa’s Barn is located behind Copper Harbor’s one-room school and is adjacent to the Grant Township Park.

The public is invited to come sit on the porch and chat with Upper Peninsula authors to find out the story behind their books and what new projects they have for future publications.

A variety of genres will be represented, including children’s, poetry, fiction, memoir, and history.

Each author will be available to sign books, which will be available for sale during the event.
