Fall Color in Presque Isle

Autumn in the gentle glacial hills of Presque Isle is famous for the in-between time of warmth and fall crispness. The hues of crimson reds, smokey golds and rich browns with bluebird skies are beautifully mirrored on the water’s reflection. Presque Isle means “almost an island” in French and the colors are most vibrant along our more than 150 named lakes and rivers.

Meet the Author: Ellen Airgood "South of Superior" @ Presque Isle Community Library | Presque Isle | Wisconsin | United States
Ellen Airgood is author of “South of Superior” and will be visiting us at the Presque Isle Library for a discussion, reading, and signing. BOOK DESCRIPTION: When Madeline Stone walks away from her Chicago life and moves five hundred miles north to the coast of Lake Superior, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, she isn’t prepared for how much her life will change. Charged with caring for an aging family friend, Madeline finds herself in the middle of beautiful nowhere with Gladys and Arbutus, two octogenarian sisters – one sharp and stubborn, the other sweeter than sunshine. As she is drawn into the dramas of the small, tight-knit town, Madeline learns that it’s a place where times are tough and debts run deep, but where friendship, community, and compassion run deeper. A debut novel full of heart, South of Superior shows that there is a deep reward in caring for others, that one who is poor in pocket can be rich in many other ways, and that happiness often comes from the smallest gestures.
