Great Waters, Great Read,
Great Action


August 8 at 6:30 PM

A community discussion of the book, Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan, will take place on Thursday, August 8th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Township Public Library in Stevensville.

Lake Michigan is one of the GREAT WATERS of the world. It is the only one of the five Great Lakes that is totally within the United States; and all five of the Great Lakes constitute the largest body of fresh water on earth.

All are invited to participate in the book discussion both to share insights and to propose GREAT ACTIONS that we as a community can take to invest in the preservation of “our Lake” — and our environment.

Death and Life of the Great Lakes, a Michigan Notable Book and a New York Times best seller, is a GREAT READ as it explores the eco-history of the lakes and the threats challenging this fragile system. The August discussion is particularly relevant to SW Michigan whose defining natural feature is Lake Michigan which provides for recreation, economic vitality and life-sustaining sustenance.

Copies of the book are available for loan from the area’s local public libraries, or may be purchased from Forever Books in St. Joseph.
