Author will share book about her favorite Michigan lighthouses with the Tecumseh Library – The Daily Telegram

TECUMSEH — A longtime Lenawee County resident, who can call herself an official author, will speak about her first-ever published book from 7 to 7:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23 during a presentation held at the Tecumseh District Library, 215 N. Ottawa St.
Local writer Tracy Huston will share her book “My Favorite Lighthouses of Michigan” with the public during Thursday’s presentation. It will be held in meeting room A.1 in the lower level of the library.
Huston, who has been a part of Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Michigan since 2002, has made several advancements during her time with the skills-building program intended for people who are facing barriers. One of her brightest accomplishments, she said during a book-signing event in April, has been publishing “My Favorite Lighthouses of Michigan.”
“I created this book for children with the hope of passing on my love and the history and beauty of our amazing Michigan lighthouses,” Huston said in a news release from the Tecumseh District Library. “I hope this book will encourage my young readers to one day visit some of Michigan’s historic lighthouses.”
She was able to complete the book with the assistance of Goodwill’s Micro-enterprise program.
The book, which is intended for people of all ages but is mostly geared toward a younger audience, shares quite a bit about Huston’s love for the many lighthouses seen across Michigan. The book also is dedicated to her father, Lloyd Huston, who died Nov. 10, 2002. Lloyd Huston would often take the family on trips during Tracy’s youth, to lighthouses around the state.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and for signing.
Huston will not only read excerpts from her book, but she will also share a little bit about her experiences visiting many of Michigan’s lighthouse, including Whitefish Point Lighthouse, White Shoal Lighthouse and Grand Traverse Lighthouse.
The illustration in Huston’s book is done completely by her as well.
There is no cost to attend the presentation. Those with questions can contact the library by calling 517-423-2238, or by visiting
