I recently had a lovely time speaking to the 
Book Club at the library 
in Schoolcraft, Michigan.

The room was packed!

Marilyn Jones reads a poem she wrote just for me

Poem by Marilyn Jones

Here's the last part of the poem 
"Our Unique Peninsula":

I couldn't wait to read her next book
of other Great Lakes I haven't seen,
It feels like she's an old friend now
that's the sign of a good author, Loreen!

Thanks to this special group, the librarians who coordinated my visit, and to Marilyn for the gift of her poem.
