Death's Door turned into graphic novel

You will be able to read about Door Couty in a different literary style next month. Written by Barbara Joosse and illustrated by Renee Graef, "Death’s Door: True Tales of Tragedy, Mystery, and Bravery from the Great Lakes’ Most Dangerous Waters" marks the first time the Wisconsin Historical Society Press released a graphic novel based on historical events. The book highlights five different events, including those surrounding a 17th-century fur trading crew and a 20th-century basketball team that occurred in the Death's Door passage. The strait of water highlighted by the graphic novel is located between Door County's mainland and Washington Island. The book will celebrate its official launch on October 21st at the Wisconsin Book Festival in Madison. Events surrounding the book are being planned for Door County next summer.
