Christine Byron and Tom Wilson will visit the Krause Memorial branch at 6:30 PM on Thursday, June 14. Their new book, Vintage Views Along the West Michigan Pike: From Sand Trails to US-31, was selected as one of the Michigan Notable Books this year. The book tells the story of the 400-mile meandering ribbon of mostly coastal road’s early beginning as serpentine sand trails and rutted dirt pathways, and its transformation to US-31 used by today’s traveler.
The authors will offer a powerpoint presentation on the book and will take questions and comments from the audience. Books will be for sale at the event.
Michigan Notable Books is designed to promote reading and raise awareness of Michigan’s literary heritage. The program annually selects 20 of the most outstanding books published in that year – titles that are reflective of Michigan’s diverse ethnic, historical, literary and cultural experience.
