New UP Almanac gets rave review

by Heather Newman on January 6, 2010

Michigan's Upper Peninsula Almanac Jack Lessenberry, columnist for a variety of Michigan and Ohio newspapers and Michigan Radio commentator, said he thought the UM Press was joking when we first offered him a look at the new Michigan’s Upper Peninsula Almanac. Surely, he said, it would be an Escanaba in Da Moonlight-style joke. He changed his mind after receiving a review copy.

“When the Upper Peninsula Almanac arrived, I just couldn’t put it down,” he wrote in his blog. “It is five-hundred and eighty pages full of, yes, crazy and fun stuff, but also fascinating history, important reference material and more information about the UP than you can imagine.”

See (and hear) his full review on the Michigan Radio site. The Upper Peninsula Almanac, by Ron Jolly and Karl Bohnak, is available for sale now.
