Biographical / Historical

The "One Book, One Community" program began in 2006 and is still an annual program as of this date. Its goal is to have Marquette County residents and Northern Michigan University students, faculty, and staff all read the same book and come together through discussions and events that focus on the book and its topics and themes. This scrapbook documents the first "One Book, One Community" program, which featured the novel The Tortilla Curtain by T.C. Boyle.

ABOUT THIS COLLECTION GUIDE

This collection guide includes collections from member organizations of UPLINK (the Upper Peninsula Digital Network) as well as the Central Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan University Archives. UPLINK collections document the history of the Upper Peninsula broadly, while the Central UP & NMU Archives focuses on such topics as Northern Michigan University history, the local iron mining industry, and the politics, economics, religion, environment, and culture of the Central Upper Peninsula region.


These finding aids will give you an overview of the contents and context of each collection. Finding aids only exist for collections that each organization has shared with UPLINK or (in the case of the NMU Archives) for processed collections. For a more comprehensive list of collections that might help with your research, please contact the relevant heritage organization(s) directly.
