Michael J. Wilson is hosting a book launch!!! Locals of Port Stanley area might know Mike as “Mike the fisherman” or “Mike the poet”. Mike was born in Windsor and spent most summers down in Port Stanley visiting his grandparents. From there his love for fishing stemmed. After starting on a tug boat, on his off days it was rare to see him without a pen and paper in his hands, writing his heart out. In the fall of 2008, sadly Mike suffered a brain injury while out on the lake, loosing his ability to read and write. Not being able to work, Mike was unsure of what the future looked like for him. Mike with the support of his family and friends, persevered and learned how to read and write again. Day to day is still a struggle, though his courage and effort has pushed him forward. During his years of recovery, he wrote what critics say is his most beautiful and inspiring work yet. This Friday at the Port Stanley Legion, listen to Mike read some of his poems from his new book Still Dancing. Reading starts at 7:30pm though the event starts at 6:30pm and ends at 9pm! Don’t miss this great opportunity to hear an amazing artist and his work, support his journey and try something new!
