Are you looking for some summer reading? Join us on Thursday, July 28th for a discussion about the Michigan Notable Book “Looking for Hickories: The Forgotten Wildness of the Rural Midwest” by Tom Springer. "Looking for Hickories" captures the essence of the upper Midwest's character with subjects particular to the region yet often universal in theme, from barn building to land preservation to the neglected importance of various trees in the landscape. There will be a Q&A for attendees.
