Ellen Airgood, author of the 2012 Michigan Notable Book, South of Superior, which is now out in paperback, will be signing her books at Horizon Books of Traverse City on Friday, May 18 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

South of Superior, set in Grand Marais in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is a charming book exploring the deep reward in caring for others. Charged with caring for an aging family friend,
Madeline Stone finds herself in the middle of beautiful nowhere with Gladys and Arbutus, two octogenarian sisters – one sharp and stubborn, the other sweeter than sunshine. As Madeline begins to experience the ways of the small, tight-knit town, she is drawn into the lives and dramas of its residents.

It’s a place where times are tough and debts run deep, but friendship, community, and compassion run deeper. As the story hurtles along – featuring a lost child, a dashed love, a car accident, a wedding, a fire, and a romantic reunion – Gladys, Arbutus, and
the rest of the town teach Madeline more about life, love, and goodwill than she’s learned in a lifetime.
