This month I will hike Isle Royale once again as part of a Moosewatch Expedition. And I was able to book speaking engagements before and after my time on Isle Royale.

The first leg of my tour took me to three states in four days:

Sun Ray Library in 
St. Paul, MN

L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library
Eau Claire, WI

Dickinson County Library
Iron Mountain, MI

Thanks to everyone who came out to hear my presentation about the wonderful and diverse islands of our Great Lakes.
