I have to thank my good friend, Lon Emerick, and his wife, Lynn, for organizing the event. They are warm and wonderful people who love writers and good writing. I also have to thank Nancy Dwyer, co-owner of the Falling Rock, for hosting the event (and giving me a $20 gift certificate to her fine establishment).
The citizens of Munising showed up in big numbers for a bunch of writers reading essays about lakes and trees and cabins and albino deer. I had my doubts about attendance as I was driving to the event. I thought we'd end up with five or ten people, if we were lucky. By the time we started reading, there were over 20 people there.
It was a wonderful night, and I met a lot of really nice people and made some really good connections. I may even be invited back for a poetry reading.
That's why Saint Marty didn't blog last night. He was just pooped. Period.
