As I was preparing for the display in Clio I was contacted by Little Curlew Press. They are an independent literary press that publishes works with a strong ecological undercurrent, including place-based eco-fiction, environmental nonfiction, and environmental journalism. Little Curlew Press has been working on a project with author Rebecca Lawton. The summer of 2014 will see the release of her book titled Steelies and Other Endangered Species: Stories on Water. Steelies is a collection of 15 stories that are linked by water and it spans from oceans and rivers to the people who love them.
I am pleased to be able to share with you that the cover image is a photograph that I took of Presque Isle River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. It is one of several that Little Curlew Press was considering for use on the cover. The cover itself was designed by James Knake.
It is an honor to be included in this project and be a part of something that draws awareness to the plight of the magical waters around us. I will share more details about the release of the book in the near future.
