THE LILAC BOOK
Lilacs: A Fortnight of Fragrance is a new book celebrating everything about lilacs on Mackinac Island – including the history of the first plants on the island and the beginning of the Lilac Festival – as told through the words of our Lilac Expert, Jeff Young, island resident Sue Allen, and island photographer Jennifer Wohletz. There are many other residents, poets, artists and photographers that have also contributed to this beautiful 150 page book. The proceeds from sales will benefit a newly established Lilac Preservation Fund that will help the island care for its most famous flora for generations to come. This book makes a wonderful keepsake item or gift for anyone who is a fan of Mackinac Island and its lovely lilacs.
