Michigan Notable Books for 2012

Michigan Notable Books

The Michigan Department of Education has released its list of “Michigan Notable Books” for 2012. The topics covered in these titles are wonderfully varied, covering everything from “a collection of Michigan ghost stories,”  “a biography of one of the most recognized women in the Republican Party” and a “history of the role Jacobson’s department stores played in Michigan communities,” among others on the list.

Twenty titles were named; the list originates from a program that began in 1991 as part of a Michigan Week celebration. According to the press release, “Each title on the 2012 list gives readers insight into what it means to make your home in Michigan and proves some of the greatest stories are indeed found in the Great Lakes region.” 

The authors of two books — D.E. Johnson and Christine Byron and Tom Wilson — will take part in KDL’s “Celebrate The Mitten” Michigan Authors Series happening March through May at select branches.
