Growing U. P.

Thursday, May 9, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Tecumseh District Library, 215 N. Ottawa St.

Retired ranger Pete Griffin will tell stories about growing up in the Upper Peninsula in the 60s and 70s. This humorous, yet thought-provoking, collection of stories is family rated and includes stories about his mother's reaction to a parking violation issued in Lansing (You'll Never Take Me Alive), what happened when the town dump was closed in the 1960s (The Year the Rats Invaded Town), his first night in a cabin once owned by a murdered man (Old Hermit's Cabin), and a poignant story about his relationship with his mother-in-law (Let's Go Fishing). His storytelling has often been compared to that of Garrison Keillor and Tom Bodett. Sponsored by the Friends of TDL.
