Any Writer Can Join These Far Northern Authors for Benefits

Isn't it wonderful that the great partners, Zoom and Covid (ahem!) have made it easier to connect and benefit from associations with other others from North to South, East to West! Here is a book club for you and I just spoke (PowerPoint speaking) at this organization's writers' conference.  The PP is online for you to see, too! It's like getting the keynote of a top national writers' conference absolutely free. That's frugal. That's why I'm enthused about the trend. 

Here's the book club information!  Scroll down where you see that UPPAA welcomes all authors to their activities and other benefits! 

For Immediate Release…

You'll be joined by readers from around the Upper Peninsula in a lively question and answer session with the author.

Winner of the North American Indian Prose AwardThree Fires Unity is the first comprehensive cross-border history of the Anishnaabeg provides an engaging account of four hundred years of their life in the Lake Huron area, showing how they have been affected by European contact and trade. Three Fires Unity examines how shifting European politics and, later, the imposition of the Canada–United States border running through their homeland, affected them and continue to do so today. In looking at the cultural, social, and political aspects of this borderland contact, Phil Bellfy sheds light on how the Anishnaabeg were able to survive and even thrive over the centuries in this intensely contested region
