A personal journey through the ever-changing natural and cultural history of Lake Superior’s South ShoreSue Leaf will join Barnes and Noble Roseville on Sunday, March 10 at 1:00 p.m. for a reading and discussion of her book Impermanence: Life and Loss on Superior's South Shore

 

A love letter to Lake Superior’s South Shore, Impermanence is a journey through its natural and human histories, an invitation to see this liminal world in all its seasons and guises. Sue Leaf shares her lifelong connection with the area, and her experience occupying a rustic cabin on a rapidly eroding lakeside cliff imbues these essays with a passionate sense of place and an abiding curiosity about its past and precarious future.

Sue Leaf's Impermanence is a fascinating combination of personal memoir, natural history, and cultural history. She writes beautifully about Lake Superior's South Shore and its forests, wetlands, and peoples. Her reflections on her family cabin on Lake Superior, and her grief about its potential loss from bluff erosion due to climate change, are particularly evocative. Anyone who loves Lake Superior will find this book rewarding.

"All readers will learn something they did not know before. Even those who have read, or written, much about Lake Superior and its geology and ecology will find something new, or at least a different perspective." —UP Book Review

"With a deft touch Leaf combines philosophy and life experiences with Lake Superior’s south shore and the surrounding culture." —Great Lakes Now
