Copper Harbor is a tiny town at the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Quite literally the end of the road (US 41), any farther and you’ll be in Canada. It’s hard to fault a town with the glorious Lake Superior on one side and tree covered mountains on the other, but, if one could. it would have been that it lacked a bookstore. That one blot on perfection was remedied a few years ago with the opening of Grandpa’s Barn.
The charming shop has a small well-chosen stock of titles to interest the fair weather tourists and to supply good reading to the hardy few who live here year ’round. I particularly liked the invitation to the Simple Pleasures Book Club where you can enjoy “dark chocolate and stimulating discussions”.
