One Book, One County!

Book Club at White Pigeon Library
Yesterday was an exciting day!

My book, A 1000-MILE WALK ON THE BEACH, was chosen for St. Joseph County's annual "One Book, One County"event!  

What an honor!

I met with the White Pigeon Book Club for a book discussion and fantastic lunch. 

That evening, I made my way to Sturgis for a reception at the library followed by my lecture at the auditorium.  
I'm on the marquis in Sturgis! (With Jane (on left) and Barbara (on right), librarians extraordinaire!)

And thanks to everyone who came to the event!   
My Mom came along to this event.  What a fantastic poster they created!


  1. Loreen, thank you so much for a truly wonderful presentation. As with your book, we were both entertained and informed. Thank you for taking this ambitious, unusual "step" to advocate for our precious Great Lakes.

  2. It was an honor to have my book chosen and I had a wonderful time at the event. It's encouraging to know that so many people care about our vast Inland Seas!

  3. What a joy it was meeting you and your mother, Loreen! And your presentation was fantastic. I think that the state of Michigan needs to hire you as the official ambassador to our Great Lakes - thank you so much for the work you do to educate everyone about our fragile ecology.
    (and woot! What a great photo of you in front of the poster I made!)
