westwoodThese authors write a wide range of books from U.P. history and children’s books to animal stories, humor, memoirs, and mysteries. If you can’t find at least one book at U.P. Authors Day to read and fall in love with, I don’t know where you will.
Please come out to support your local authors and celebrate with us the literature of Upper Michigan. After all, we live in a rich area full of interesting characters and places that deserve to be in books. I for one am grateful that we Yoopers now have a literature of our own.
Of course, there are wonderful authors writing books all over this world, and below are some of those authors offering a wide range of fascinating topics and information. Be sure to check them out.


  1. Tyler, I want to thank you again for all your wisdom and all you do for us, we writers. I’m sure this will be another wonderful event and helpful for all. I’ll see you there. (I enjoyed your play very much. I was thinking “Man! I want to write a play too!”

  2. Thanks, Allen, but this piece should say that I have had a lot of help from Ellen Sargent, the manager of the Westwood Mall and Gretchen Preston, fellow UPPAA member, in organizing this event. Let’s hope for great book sales!
