Meet author Kathryn Houghton, as she signs her book Little Michigan: A Nostalgic Look at Michigan’s Smallest Towns, part of the Tiny Towns book series. Little Michigan presents 100 towns with populations under 600. From the state’s long mining history to its Civil War heritage, each community is charming and unique. With full-color photographs, fun facts, and fascinating details about every locale, it’s almost as if you’re walking down Main Street, waving hello to folks who know all of their neighbors.
About Little Michigan
Michigan small towns have their share of surprises. Do you know which crime scene inspired the famous film Anatomy of a Murder, or where you will find the infamous “Naughty Cow” statue―and how it got its nickname? The locations featured in this book range from quaint to historic, and they wonderfully represent the Great Lakes State. Little Michigan, written by lifelong resident Kathryn Houghton, is for anyone who grew up in a small town and for everyone who takes pride in being called a Michigander. They may be small towns, but they have huge character!
