Growing Up Near the Great Lakes

Illustration from The Boy Who Ran to the Woods by Jim Harrison, illustrated by Tom Pohrt. New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, 2000.

Dr. Elizabeth Goodenough explores the landscapes of the Great Lakes as they shape the lives of children, writers, and illustrators. She offers images and tales of lighthouses and shipwrecks from the inland seas, a biosphere with the power to influence artists forever. Stories of displaced children, indigenous youth, and runaways portray stormy passages. What geography constitutes “home” in picture books, Y/A and graphic novels, legends, and film?  How do we retain and preserve the settings we first encountered?
