UP Notable Book Club: A Nostalgic Lens

October 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

UPPAA Cover of a book titled "A Nostalgic Lens: Photographs & Essays from Michigan's Upper Peninsula" by Peter Wurdock. The cover features a picture of two vintage cars driving on a bridge with a large suspension structure in the background.

Join us for a Q&A and discussion with Peter Murdock, author of A Nostalgic Lens.

A Nostalgic Lens is Wurdock’s sixth book. It is a black-and-white photo study complimented with short, poignant essays detailing his life in the Eastern Upper Peninsula since leaving Metro Detroit. His photos and short narratives illustrate how life in the UP  with his beloved Greyhounds has been anything but mundane.

In the book he describes places he knows well but are not found in a travel brochure. These observations are beautifully and carefully woven with very few words leading readers to arrive at the universal conclusions about what makes life in the slow lane worth living.
