One of the very best ways to enjoy summer in Michigan is to park yourself under a tree or on a beach and get lost in a good book.
Poet Keith Taylor joined Stateside to talk about some of his suggestions for your summer reading list.
Recently retired as a creative writing teacher at the University of Michigan, Taylor just published another book called Ecstatic Destinations about his Ann Arbor neighborhood.
Below are Keith Taylor's summer reading picks:
- The Verdun Affair, by Nick Dybek
- Registers of Illuminated Villages, by Tarfia Faizullah
- Number One Chinese Restaurant, by Lillian Li
