Stateside: Keith Taylor's top three winter reads


As cold weather begins biting our fingers, reveries of fireside reading become common and lingering.

Keith Taylor writes both poetry and fiction; he coordinates the undergraduate program in creative writing at the University of Michigan and is the poetry editor for Michigan Quarterly Review.

Taylor knows Michigan literature-  so we asked him to compile a list of his three recommended winter reads. 

"In cold weather, I like to read about cold. I like to read about snow. Michigan authors have been good about writing about winter," said Taylor.

Listen to our podcast to hear Taylor read passages from each of the three chosen texts.

Taylor's three choices  were:

"Cold" by John Smolens

"A Cold Day in Paradise" by Steve Hamilton

"Once Upon a River" by Bonnie Jo Campbell
