Join researcher and author Victoria Brehm as she explores Great Lakes literature, encompassing texts by many ethnicities and in several genres that trace the interactions of peoples in a place. Lakes literature is a record of lives on the lakes over centuries, tracing war, industrialization, environmental degradation, and recovery.
