The Harbor Springs Festival of the Book is proud to announce the One Bay, One Book Community Reads program. This new program will be an annual event offered by the Festival. Each year the Festival will select one book for the community to read followed by an opportunity to come together to discuss the book with the author.
Unlike other Festival events, the selected book will be chosen from the Festival’s author alumni. Criteria to be considered will include relevance for the entire community regarding the book’s theme, appeal to a variety of age groups, and its timeliness or timelessness.
On Wednesday, April 28th, at 7 p.m. EDT, the community is invited to gather together, virtually, for the One Bay, One Book program featuring 2018 Festival presenter and National Book Award finalist,Brandon Hodson, as he discusses The Removed. The novel is a story steeped in Cherokee myths and history, a novel about a fractured family reckoning with the tragic death of their son long ago.
The Festival is also pleased to announce the moderator for this virtual conversation will be Margaret Noodin, poet and Professor of English and American Indian studies at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, where she also serves as the Associate Dean of the Humanities and Director of the Electa Quinney Institute for American Indian Education.
