On the road: A few photos from The Great Michigan Read tour

Yes, we really were having as much fun as these photos suggest.

It's hard to wield a camera and talk at the same time, so thanks to photographer Dave Trumpie (and the Michigan Humanities Council, the force behind the Great Michigan Read) for capturing the moment.
