Leland library hosts author Tim Mulherin

From staff reports

On Tuesday, June 29, at 7 pm, Cedar summer resident and author Tim Mulherin will visit Leland Township Library to discuss his new book Sand, Stars, Wind & Water: Field Notes from Up North. This book is a vivid, entertaining chronicle of the author’s outdoor adventures exploring northwest lower Michigan. Anyone who has visited this special place—or plans to—as well as local natives and transplants will find Mulherin’s writing a thoughtful and amusing representation of what being “Up North” is really all about.

Tim Mulherin currently—and somewhat reluctantly—lives in Indianapolis, Indiana. Mulherin first visited Leelanau and Grand Traverse counties in 1986, and hasn’t been the same since. Meanwhile, he’s been keeping field notes of his adventures here, which resulted in this book, a tribute to the region and its people, and an encouragement for visitors to respect this national treasure. Mulherin and his wife have owned a cabin in the village of Cedar for the past 10 years. In days to come, they will return to their home Up North—for good.

There is no cost to attend the program and registration is not required. The program will take place in the Munnecke Room at the library. For more information, 256-9152 (Library) or LelandLibrary.org.
