ESCANABA – The Escanaba Public Library will host an author conference with notable Michigan 2022 author David Hardin and his book, Standpipe-Delivering Water in Flint, on Thursday, June 16 at 4:30 p.m.
Her book is a memoir of the author’s work as a Red Cross volunteer delivering emergency water to residents of Flint, Michigan. Her book dramatizes the struggles of a city in crisis against the author’s personal journey as her mother declines into dementia and eventual death. It is an intimate look at her engagement with civic and family trauma.
David Hardin is also the author of Dreaming Bob Wills, a collection of poetry. Her work has appeared in literary journals in print and online, including Dunes Review, Michigan Quarterly Review online, The Madison Review, Carolina Quarterly, and others. A retired teacher, he works as a freelance writer for small independent publishers.
The event does not require registration and is free to the public.

Endowment for the Humanities for making this program available to the community.
