GRAND HAVEN, Mich. -- The public is invited to the Loutit District Library on Thursday, April 18 to join PBS-featured author and life-long Michigan resident Doc Fletcher as he presents his canoeing and kayaking program titled "Paddle Now, Chores Later.”  

The program is free to the public and held in the LDL’s Program Room A from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Among the rivers featured will be the Pere Marquette, the subject of Doc's 2013 book. The program will also focus on the U.P.'s Two Hearted River, a gorgeous stream that flows into Lake Superior, and how it  is recovering from the 2012 Duck Lake fire, the third largest fire in Michigan's history.

At the end of Fletcher's program, a free drawing will be held and one person will win a gift certificate good for a free canoe or kayak day trip. Canoe/kayak livery brochures and state maps will be made available to assist program attendees in planning river trips.

For those interested, Fletcher will sign and sell copies of his canoeing and kayaking books. To learn more about Doc's books, go to www.canoeingmichiganrivers.com
