Libraries host Leelanau Reads with William Kent Krueger

From staff reports

The four public libraries of Leelanau County are pleased to host William Kent Krueger on Saturday, May 18, at 7 pm at the Northport Performing Arts Center. Krueger is the author of more than 20 books, including the popular Cork O’Connor mystery series. He will discuss his latest book, The River We Remember. He will be interviewed by local writer Aaron Stander, author of the Ray Elkins mystery series. Copies of The River We Remember will be available for purchase at the event thanks to Dog Ears Books. Registration is required for this free author event.

This author event is part of Leelanau Reads community reading program. During the annual Leelanau Reads program, county residents are encouraged to come together in a shared reading experience. This year’s book pick is Krueger’s The River We Remember, a spellbinding mystery and a masterful portrait of mid-century American life. Copies of the book are available to borrow from your local library and to purchase at your local bookseller. Each library will host a discussion of the book, open to all readers, in advance of the author event.
Leelanau County, let’s read together.

This event is sponsored by Glen Lake Community Library, Leland Township Library, Leelanau Township Library, and Suttons Bay Bingham District Library with generous support from each library’s Friends of the Library group and the Mid-Michigan Library League.
