"Harborless" - A Collection of Poems Informed by Great Lakes Shipwrecks 

6:00 - 7:00PM, Monday, June 4

2018 Michigan Notable Book author Cindy Hunter Morgan will be visiting HPL to give a reading on her book Harborless.
From Wayne State University Press: Harborless, a collection of poems informed by Great Lakes shipwrecks, is part history and part reinvention. The poems explore tragic wrecks in rivers and lakes, finding and forming artistic meaning from destruction and death. Each poem begins in a real, historical moment that Cindy Hunter Morgan transforms into an imagined truth. The imaginative element is essential to this work as it provides a previously unseen glimpse into the lives affected by shipwrecks. The poems in Harborless confront the mysteries surrounding the objects that cover the floor of the Great Lakes by both deepening our understanding of the unknown and teaching great empathy for a life most of us will never know.
In addition to winning the Michigan Notable Book Award, Harborless won the 2017 Moveen Prize in Poetry. Don't miss this intriguing program with Cindy Hunter Morgan.
