The Summer/Fall 2017 issue of Dunes Review is here — come join the release party!

Sunday, October 22, 2017
12:00 noon
Brilliant Books, 118 E. Front St., Traverse City

There’s a complete list of this issue’s contributors below. For a preview of their work, check out Brilliant Books’ author interview series. Thanks again to our friends at Brilliant Books for being our host.

If it seems unusual for us to launch Dunes Review on a Sunday, it is — but we don’t want you to have to choose between Dunes and the tribute for celebrated author (and past Dunes Review contributor) Jim Harrison being held Saturday at the City Opera House.
