Upper Peninsula Authors Book Signings At Art In The Park

Some of the best artists in the Midwest will converge on Copper Harbor this weekend for the annual Art in the Park.

In addition to the terrific works by the artists, a slew of Upper Peninsula authors will be on hand to do book signings on the porch at Grandpa’s Barn.

You’re invited to come sit on the porch and chat with them to find out the story behind their books and what new projects they have for future publications.

A variety of genres will be represented – children’s, poetry, fiction, memoir, and history to name a few, so there will be something for everyone.

Authors will be signing books Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Books will also be available for sale.

As a special event on Saturday, five contributors to the book And Here: 100 Years of Upper Peninsula Writing, 1917-2017 will be visiting between noon and 4:00 pm.

And Here, an anthology published in 2017 by Michigan State University Press, features a wide array of literary genres and includes pieces from each decade between 1917 and 2017.

Grandpa’s Barn is located behind Copper Harbor’s one-room school and is adjacent to the Grant Township Park.  For more information, please stop by the shop, or call us at 906.289-4377
