What's Happening in the Literary World?

2023 Michigan Notable Books List Announced!

This year's list of Michigan Notable Books continues the tradition of reflecting the rich stories and culture of our state by exploring the fascinating life of Mendon's Madame Marantette; celebrating the generations of Pewabic artists in Detroit; demonstrating the struggles to protect one's Ojibwe community; capturing the lifelong journey to better know that place we call "Up North"; and more.

The Library of Michigan has announced the titles of the 20 books on the 2022 Michigan Notable Book list. The celebrated books encompass the entire Great Lakes basin from the far reaches of the Upper Peninsula to stories about Detroit, and all along the shores of Lake Michigan.

Read the full press release here!

Each selected title speaks to our state's rich cultural, historical, and literary heritage and proves without a doubt that some of the greatest stories are found in the Great Lakes State.
