Museum prepares Great Lakes Book Club for 2023

Press Staff Writer

        The National Museum of the Great Lakes is kicking off 2023 programming season with its virtual lunchtime Great Lakes Book Club, featuring three books meant to provide new insights into America’s inland seas.
        The museum is encouraging interested participants to grab their own lunch and join others online for three monthly guided discussions held at noon on Tuesdays, Jan. 31, Feb. 28 and March 28.
        “We created this book club last year as a great way to get people to engage and learn more about the Great Lakes,” said Ellen Kennedy, Education and Visitor Experience Director at NMGL. “This year we choose three different books that span from non-fiction to fiction and cover a wide range of historical and contemporary topics about the Great Lakes.
        “So whether you’re a boatnerd, history buff or nature-lover, there is a little something for everyone,” Kennedy said.              
        The featured books for this year include: “Floating Palaces of the Great Lakes,” by Joel Stone (January); “The Death and Life of the Great Lakes,” by Dan Egan (February) and “Sisters of Sweetwater Fury,” by Kinley Bryan (March).
        Stone will join in on the discussion on Jan. 31 and answer questions and provide insight into his book’s topic.
        Registration to participate in the Great Lakes book club is free, but required. Participants can choose to purchase the book(s) at the museum store by visiting the museum in person or by shopping online at
