Book Review - U.P. Reader -- Issue #1: Bringing Upper Michigan Literature to the World Kindle Edition by Mikel Classen

Book Review
U.P. Reader -- Issue #1: Bringing Upper Michigan Literature to the World Kindle Edition 
by Mikel Classen
Book Description
Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is blessed with a treasure chest of writers and poets, all seeking to capture the diverse experiences of Yooper Life. Now U.P. Reader offers a rich collection of their voices that embraces the U.P.’s natural beauty and way of life, along with a few surprises. The twenty-eight works in this first annual volume take readers on a U.P. Road Trip from the Mackinac Bridge to Menominee. Every page is rich with descriptions of the characters and culture that make the Upper Peninsula worth living in and writing about.

Whether you’re a native Yooper or just wish you were, you’ll love U.P. Reader and want to share it with all your Yooper family and friends.

“U.P. Reader offers a wonderful mix of storytelling, poetry, and Yooper culture. Here’s to many future volumes!” — Sonny Longtine, author of Murder in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

“Share in the bounty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with those who love it most. The U.P. Reader has something for everyone. Congratulations to my writer and poet peers for a job well done.” — Gretchen Preston, Vice President, Upper Peninsula Publishers and Authors Association

“As readers embark upon this storied landscape, they learn that the people of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula offer a unique voice, a tribute to a timeless place too long silent.” — Sue Harrison, international bestselling author of Mother Earth Father Sky

“I was amazed by the variety of voices in this volume. U.P. Reader offers a little of everything, from short stories to nature poetry, fantasy to reality, Yooper lore to humor. I look forward to the next issue.” — Jackie Stark, editor, Marquette Monthly

“Like the best of U.P. blizzards, U.P. Reader covers all of Upper Michigan in the variety of its offerings. A fine mix of nature, engaging characters, the supernatural, poetry, and much more.” — Karl Bohnak, TV 6 meteorologist and author of So Cold a Sky: Upper Michigan Weather Stories

Hubbie's Review
An excellent publication for local and aspiring authors to illustrate their prose and writings. The illustrations that accompany the short stories are first class. The layout and variety of stories are paramount to the magazine’s success. I wish I had a similar publication in my own town so I could submit my ideas too .Well done for seizing the initative.
