The Isle Royale Artist-in-Residence Program—familiarly referred to as AIR—has for 25 years been a source of inspiration and creativity for a variety of artists, writers, and musicians. In celebration of this milestone, Isle Royale from the AIR provides a representative sampling from 18 writers (and six Michigan visual artists) who have transfigured the park’s wild beauty into poems, stories, essays, songs, paintings, and photographs.

Isle Royale from the AIR is available to purchase directly from Caffeinated Press or by order through your local bookstore.
