One Book One Community of Monroe County 2024

OBOC Kickoff Event

OBOC of Monroe County in partnership with the Library of the Great Lakes is proud to present Book Connections with Michigan writer Sally Cole-Misch.

Join us on March 12th, 2024 from 6pm-8pm in the MCCC Library to hear from Sally Cole-Mish about her book The Best Part of Us. There will be community booths and a book signing. 

The Library of the Great Lakes is based on the geologic formation of Lakes Michigan, Erie, Superior, Huron and Ontario, transcending borders and boundaries; a library without walls. The mission of the Library of the Great Lakes is to inspire and launch exploration of the science, history, literature, arts, and cultures of the Great Lakes region.

This activity is supported by the Michigan Arts & Culture Council, administered by Creative Washtenaw.

Sally Cole-Misch is a writer and environmental communicator who advocates for the natural world through work and play. She holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Missouri, a master's degree in environmental education and international water policy from the University of Michigan, and a certificate in fiction writing from Stanford University. Throughout her career, she's focused on communicating our essential connections with nature -- particularly the Great Lakes -- and the role each of us can play to restore, protect, and enjoy all that nature gives to us. Sally lives in Michigan and enjoys hiking, skiing, kayaking, sailing, gardening and reading, a hearty laugh with friends, the wonder of surprise, and the optimism that nature's beauty always provides.
