In August the week-long Antioch Writers' Workshop was held in Yellow Springs. The workshop's faculty members, all published authors, held nightly readings at Antioch University Midwest during that week and during the month of November we'll be bringing excerpts from some of those readings on WYSO Weekend.
Today we hear a reading from Jerry Dennis, a freelance writer celebrated for his work about nature and the great outdoors. He's written 11 books and numerous articles for National Geographic, Audobon and Smithsonian, among others. Here he shares an essay about a memorable winter in Michigan's upper peninsula.
