From the Great Lakes to the Global Water Crisis: Writers on Water

Lake Effects Lake Effects
Lake Effects
Join us for an evening of poetry and prose dedicated to water in Michigan and beyond.

A part of the semester-long campus-wide conversation about the Great Lakes, the evening will include readings from Great Lakes area writers and Michigan Quarterly Review (MQR) contributors Donovan Hohn, Anna Clark, Keith Taylor, and Margaret Noodin. The event will celebrate MQR's Summer 2011 issue "The Great Lakes: Love Song and Lament," guest edited by poet and retired University of Michigan writing professor Keith Taylor (featuring writing from Margaret Noodin), and introduce the Spring 2020 issue "Not One Without: A Special Issue on Water," guest edited by environmental journalist and author Anna Clark (U-M, 2003).

As we take a semester to consider the global implications, challenges, and transformative opportunities of the Great Lakes, we are making space for the literature of the lakes which helps shape their future.

This event is hosted in conjunction with the Winter 2020 Great Lakes Theme Semester: Lake Effects, the Michigan Quarterly Review, flagship literary journal of the University of Michigan, and the Hopwood Program.
