In June 2017, the Howell Carnegie Library hosted an event entitled
101 Things That Happened On the Mackinac Bridge
. It was presented by Mike Fornes to a packed crowd in the Library’s Meabon Room. Mr. Fornes is an engaging, knowledgeable speaker and it only makes sense: as a journalist, Mike Fornes covered the Mackinac Bridge for over 20 years, has written two books about it (plus a few more on the US Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw), and has given over 2,000 tours of the bridge!
