Mark your calendars! We are thrilled and honored to announce that the Pickford Community library has been selected to host poet Cindy Hunter Morgan as part of the Library of Michigan 2018 Michigan Notable Books Tour. Professor Morgan's book, "Harborless" was one of 20 books selected from over 300 submissions in 2017. Her work "is a collection of poems informed by Great Lakes shipwrecks. Part history and part reinvention, most of the poems are titled after the name of a ship, the year of the wreck, and the lake in which the ship met disaster. The book's time frame spans from wrecks that precede the Civil War to those involving modern ore carriers."* Cindy Hunter Morgan is an assistant professor of creative writing, and book arts at Michigan State University. She is also the author of two chapbooks: "The Sultan, The Skater, The Bicycle Maker," which won The Ledge Press 2011 Poetry Chapbook Competition, and "Apple Season," which won the Midwest Writing Center's 2012 Chapbook Contest. To learn more about her work, please visit her website at cindyhuntermorgan.com. For more information, please contact the Pickford Community Library at amsmith@uproc.lib.mi.us or 906-647-1288. The Pickford Community Library is located at 230 East Main Street in downtown Pickford. We hope to see you there! *Excerpt from Library of Michigan press release to Detroit Free Press.
