I would recommend U.P. author Mikel B. Classen, you can reach him at 
Mikel Classen <classenmikel at gmail.com>.   He is based in the Soo right 
now but travels extensively for events.  He can speak on many topics 
including but not limited to lighthouses, shipwrecks, natural areas and 
recreation, the history of mining and timber, ghost towns, organized 
crime in the U.P., and the forgotten history of the U.P., just to name a 
few ideas.

His book Points North won a Historical Society of Michigan Award 

Mikel B. Classen has been writing and photographing northern Michigan in 
newspapers and magazines for over thirty-five years, creating feature 
articles about the life and culture of Michigan’s north country. A 
journalist, historian, photographer and author with a fascination of the 
world around him, he enjoys researching and writing about lost stories 
from the past. Currently he is managing editor of the U.P. Reader and is 
a member of the Board of Directors for the Upper Peninsula Publishers 
and Authors Association. In 2020, Mikel won the Historical Society of 
Michigan’s, George Follo Award for Upper Peninsula History.
