Author Event: Sharon Smithem, Illustrator: Mushroom House Man

August 22, 2022, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Along the shores of Lake Michigan in the small town of Charlevoix sit unique mushroom-like homes created by architect Earl A. Young. Seeing nature and home in this playful tumble of bumpy stone walls and wavy roofs fills the soul with delight. When Alice B. McGinty—author of nearly 50 books—saw these homes in 2017, she knew she needed to write about them.
The result is the award-winning author’s most recent release for young readers, Mushroom House Man: The Story of Earl Young and His Cottages of Stone.
In Mushroom House Man, young readers can discover the true story of Earl Young through McGinty’s writing and Sharon Smithem’s illustrations. With nature as his teacher and an unstoppable creative spirit, Earl Young transformed the boulders from Lake Michigan’s northern shores into Charlevoix’s fairytale cottages, which are now known and beloved worldwide.
While Mushroom House Man is characterized as a children’s book, McGinty considered an older audience as well while writing.
