Local author Conor Mihell will present his recently published book:

The Greatest Lake: Stories from Lake Superiorís North Shore.

Attendees will enjoy a one-hour presentation of readings and photos followed by an opportunity to purchase books and have them signed by the author.

Conor Mihell offers a compelling image of Lake Superiorís Canadian shore through colourful personality sketches, adventure stories, and environmental accounts. Admire the kitschy decor of lighthouse cottager Maureen Robertson, a seventy-six-year-old who spends six months of the year alone on a remote island; enter the debate over a controversial aggregate quarry in Wawa, Ontario; and learn how the authorís love affair with the worldís largest freshwater lake began on quests for a near-mystical, glacier-dropped monolith.

Mihellís stories build on Lake Superiorís rich and varied history and support itís critical place in Canadian Culture. Since the beginning, Lake Superior has been revered for itís God-like qualities of power, unpredictability, and a seemingly endless expanse of life-sustaining freshwater. The lakeís rugged yet fragile nature, hardscrabble characters, and outpost communities define rural Northern Ontario.

Experience it for yourself in this first collection of stories by one of the regionís most acclaimed journalists.

This event is FREE.
