Chelsea's Own Honored Again for Michigan Notable Book Award via Chelsea District Library
Chelsea's Own Honored Again for Michigan Notable Book Award
The annual list of Michigan's Notable Bookscreated by the Library of Michigan contains 20 titles published in the past year that were written by Michigan authors, or that spotlight people, places and history related to Michigan.
Chelsea's own Laura Kasischke has been honored again this year for her work with Keith Taylor on the anthology Ghost Writers: Us Haunting Them, Contemporary Michigan Literature, a collection of stories from Michigan authors ranging from true stories written by nonbelievers to fiction stories set in various Michigan locations.
Bonnie Jo Campbell's excellent coming of age novel Once Upon a River also made the list. The book features a young girl who sets off on her own, Huck Finn-style, to create her own life and find freedom along a rural Michigan waterway.
Kasischke, Taylor and Campbell were all featured in the 3rd Annual Midwest Literary Walk last April - video of their readings can be seen at the event website: www.MidwestLiteraryWalk.wordpress.com
