What: William Kent Krueger Reading & Discussion
Cork O'Connor is back! A taut, suspenseful thriller, Manitou Canyon features everything readers love in a Cork O’Connor novel: a dramatic Northwoods setting, an intriguing view of the Objibwe culture, an enigmatic crime, masterful storytelling, and more than a few surprises. Since the violent deaths of his wife, father, and best friend all occurred in previous Novembers, Cork O’Connor has always considered it to be the cruelest of months. Yet, his daughter has chosen this dismal time of year in which to marry, and Cork is understandably uneasy.
Join us on Sunday, October 23rd at 1pm at Big Water Coffee Roasters where author William Kent Krueger will read from and discuss his latest mystery! Following the discussion, we will have copies available for purchase and signing across the street at Apostle Islands Booksellers.

John Muir (1838-1914) was one of America's most important environmental thinkers and activists. He came to Wisconsin as a boy, grew up near Portage, and attended the University of Wisconsin. After decades of wandering in the mountains of California, he led the movement for national parks and helped create the Sierra Club.
But for much of his life, Muir's call to protect wild places fell on deaf ears. This exhibit about Muir"s life and legacy is being shared by the Wisconsin Historical Society with 25 local libraries and historical societies during 2016 in order to celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service.
We are proud to be partnering with the Bayfield Carnegie Library and the Bayfield Heritage Association to host this fantastic display.
