The Glen Arbor Arts Center hosts the launch of Elemental: A Collection of Michigan Creative Nonfiction on November 15, 7 pm in the gallery, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. In this celebration of a new Michigan anthology, Elemental editor Anne-Marie Oomen, and a group of writers represented in Elemental will read from the pieces selected for the anthology. The book launch follows the Oomen-led writing workshop “Five Rivers,” and will include student reading. This event is open to the public without charge.
Michigan authors reading at the Elemental book launch include Jacob Wheeler, Jamien Delp, Keith Taylor, Michael Steinberg, Fleda Brown, Mardi Link, and Ari Mokdad.
Elemental: A Collection of Michigan Creative Nonfiction brings together writing by 23 Michigan essayists. It is a celebration of the elements – wind, earth, fire and water – and touches on familiar topics such as weather patterns, the lakes, ecology, farming, shipping, loggers, and the state’s industrial ebb and flow. Elemental: A Collection of Michigan Creative Nonfiction is being published in November, and is part of Wayne State University’s “Made in Michigan” writers series.
