The Door County Library will take readers through the dangers facing the Great Lakes and a modern-day tale based on the Voyageurs. The 2019 Door County Reads program features reviews and discussions of "The Life and Death of the Great Lakes" by Dan Eagan. Youth Services Librarian Beth Lokken says Eagan's book is like a story still being written.
Water is also a theme in the other selection for Door County Reads. "Wintering" by Peter Geye is a combined modern day version of the trials faced by some of the early Great Lakes explorers and a mystery.
Copies of the books will be available at library branches starting December 17th with discussions held weekly through February 15th.
