Book Club

Announcing the U.P. Notable Book Club!

Read Books—Zoom with Authors—Get Educated and Entranced with/by Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula

Do you love to read?  Do you love the raw, untamed, beautiful U.P?  Do you feel like winter is closing in and you want to spend time with interesting people? Then here is just the thing for you—Join the U.P. Notable Books Book Club!

Here is how.  There are ten books on the 4th Annual U.P. Notable Books List.  Nine of the authors have agreed to do a Zoom talk with readers like yourself about their book.  Buy these nine books, or check them out from your local library.  (If you are buying your books, please consider supporting your local, independent booksellers).  Then meet with the author and other readers monthly to discuss the book.

HOW TO JOIN: Please contact Evelyn Gathu in advance by email: or by phone (906) 875-3344.  We recommend you borrow a copy of these books from your local library or purchase from your local bookseller in advance to get the most out of these events.

The 4th Wave schedule is:
