Steven Faulkner presents Waterwalk: A Passage of GhostsFriday, July 20

Steven Faulkner was the editor of the Blue Lake Michigan newspaper when he was laid off. Steven’s then 17 year old son suggested he join him in an attempt to retrace the historic 1673 route of French explorers Marquette and Joliet. The canoe journey would end up taking them along the Lake Michigan shore to Green Bay, up the Fox River, and finally down the Wisconsin River to the mighty Mississippi. Waterwalk: a Passage of Ghosts is the story of their adventure.
The book has been made into a film and will be showing in Green Bay at the Meyer Theatre on Wednesday, July 18 at 5:30 PM.
Please join us as we welcome Steven to the Reader’s Loft Friday, July 20.
