Joe Kirkish: Long Exposure
May 2, 2022
Join us on Thursday, May 12, from 6 – 7pm for an evening with Joe Kirkish, a living legend of Michigan’s Copper Country. Renowned as a photographer, a Michigan Tech humanities professor, a pioneering public radio producer and film series organizer, as well as an art critic and local columnist, Kirkish has been an indefatigable cultural force in his hometown of Houghton and throughout the Keweenaw Peninsula.
His memoir, Long Exposure, is a lively and probing self-portrait and spans his childhood years in the 1920s and ‘30s growing up in the UP. Joe will have books for sale at the reading.
