Grand Marais, MN--July 11

I will be doing a poetry "salon" at Drury Lane Books in Grand Marais, Mn on July 11, beginning at 5 pm. I'm really looking forward to it! If you've never been to Grand Marais, you must go sometime. It's just beautiful---wwaaaayyyy up the North Shore of Lake Superior. We'll be taking our leisurely time driving up Highway 61 (yes, Bob Dylan's Highway 61) on Friday, stopping at Betty's Pies in Two Harbors, hiking over to Temperance Falls, and generally enjoying the scenery. The first time I went to Grand Marais, I immediately came home and started researching teaching jobs there. I calmed down eventually, but I do still love to visit when I can. I'm looking forward to hiking to Devil's Kettle (pictured at right), taking a freezing plunge into that ocean of a lake, and picking up a few more beach stones for my collection.

Happy Summer!

A trip that combines poetry, Dylan, glorious scenery AND pies! Sounds like heaven!
