Loreen Niewewnhuis, author of the Great Lakes Adventure Trilogy, continues to offers her engaging presentations to libraries, environmental groups, book clubs, and civic organizations, following the June 2015 release of the third book in her series, A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Isiand Adventure.
For a listing of her many appearances, visit her Lake Trek website here.
Coming talks include events at public libraries in Battle Creek and Troy, Michigan. and Saturday, Oct. 17, a presentation at Chicago’s Newbery Library, where she’ll discuss the state of the Great Lakes, her three epic walks, and her creative writing process.
In October, she’ll also be speaking at four REI stores in the Chicagoland area.
In another example of the widespread recognition for her unique long treks highlighting the heritage, human history, and ecological issues of the Great Lakes, Van Buren County (Michigan) is featuring her first book, A 1,000-Mile Walk on the Beach, as a One County, One Book community read.
Loreen has been widely praised for her live presentations. As Martha Bolyard of The Nature Conservancy of Indiana said:
“Loreen translates her passion for our Great Lakes into advocacy, education, science, humor and beauty by taking listeners and readers with her on these GREAT adventures. Her September 2014 five-city speaking blitz awed and inspired Indiana conservationists with the importance of preserving and protecting the Great Lakes. Loreen’s adventures are truly amazing!”
If you live in Michigan or the Chicago area, we hope you’ll be able to catch one of her programs.
For the rest of you, well . . . just pick up one of her three books, and join Ms. Niewenhuis for an ever-changing, ever-insightful walk along the diverse shorelines of the vast Great Lakes eco-system.
