Destination: books (and wine)

Northern Michigan’s Traverse City has long been known for its wineries, but now the vacation hot spot is making a name for itself nationally in something else: books.

The local Borders may have closed, but we’re betting book lovers in that region didn’t bat an eye. If you’re ever in the area, take a day to check out the full-service bookstores in downtown Traverse City: Horizon Books, Brilliant Books, and Books-A-Million. Wandering through town, you’ll find other niche and used bookstores, too.

Also based in Traverse City is literary nonprofit organization National Writers Series, which is pushing local government to brand Traverse City as a “book city.” The move would not only officially recognize the impact books have on the region’s economy, but also ideally draw in more book tourists (who may or may not have a penchant for wine).

For a glimpse from your own couch, check out the National Writers Series, Horizon Books, or The Bookie Joint.

    I’m probably in the dinosaur class when it comes to doing things in this medium, but I am having difficulty in understanding/ figuring out the means by which to submit a proposed manuscript. It is a children’s story and I’m not sure from your previews that is a topic of any Interest to your company. If not, I apologize for wasting your time.

    Thank you
