Review of The Great Lakes Book Project
by Scott Kennedy
Published earlier this year, The Great Lakes Book Project is quickly becoming a success. The project started as a simple idea, but Walter Blake Knoblock transformed it into his first published work. He chose to complete this project in a book format because he felt it was the right way to present a collection of short literary works based upon the Great Lakes and the region as a whole. Since Knoblock is from Traverse City, Michigan, most of his connections are from the state of Michigan. Thus making the Great Lakes Book Project have a majority of its short stories by Michigan authors about their experiences in the great lakes state.
It’s always great for Michigancentric companies to work together! Thank you to our friends at AwesomeMitten.com for their gracious write-up!
“However, what makes Knoblock’s project remarkable is the devotion to preserving the bodies of water that envelop our state. The project, expected to be published around Christmas, promises to donate the proceeds toward helping preserve The Great Lakes. The project includes a wide variety of writers from the Midwest that all share memories of the most wonderful resource our state enjoys.” (read more)
