I’m looking to find find UP authors who write about the area’s ethnic heritage to be part of a panel discussion during the week prior to the Parade of Nations Sept. 17 date. This would fit into the “Passport to the World” theme of the 27th Annual Parade of Nations and they could talk about how they became interested in writing about their subject matter. Writers of all genres (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, photography, etc.) are invited to participate.
Writers of any background who have ethnic / cultural expertise on populations who currently live (or did live) in the Upper Peninsula (regardless of whether they were in the local the Keweenaw Bay area) are encouraged to contact Bob Wenc ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) as soon as possible.
