A find from the best shelf in the library.

I randomly pulled this off the new bookshelf one day because the title and cover were eye catching. It was a find - an assortment of essays on all types of topics by a diverse group of Michigan authors. I enjoyed every one, but  was especially captivated by the essays about the suburban deer of Meridian township; by the investigation of the Niagara Escarpment on Drummond Island; by the story of a bookseller finding a true crime story about an ancestor in an obscure old book and  finally by an exploration of white privilege by someone who was, and wasn’t, part of that privileged class.
