From New Buffalo beaches to the Straits of Mackinac few of America’s beauty spots enjoy as colorful a heritage as Michigan’s sunset shore. Ottawa and Potawatomi warriors people its past, as well as intrepid explorers, steel-sinewed voyageurs, hardy pioneers, courageous ship captains and rough-hewn lumberjacks.

Sand dunes have crept forward to bury ghost towns, passenger pigeons once darkened the skies, and many are the proud vessels that sailed to never return to port.

On Wednesday, August 1 at 4:00pm, join best-selling author of 22 books about Michigan’s history and dynamic storyteller Larry B. Massie for a colorful telling of true stories that will entertain anyone who’s felt the lure of glorious Lake Michigan. Family Friendly. Free.

This family friendly event is co-sponsored by Leland Township Library and Leelanau Historical Society.
