Curwood Festival in Owosso

Let's hear it for the people of Owosso who have preserved the memory of one James Oliver Curwood. He was born in Owosso and became one of the most famous writers of fiction in the 1920's. Specializing in adventure tales, he had this castle built as his writing studio in 1922 overlooking the beautiful Shiawassee River. We thoroughly enjoyed touring the castle, all the memorablia surrounding the author, climbing the turret and even sitting at his desk this past Sunday during the 34th annual Curwood Festival. We learned tons about James, as he wrote many novels which were turned into movies. His most famous was The Bear or L'Ours, directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud. Time to queue it up on Netflix or put the book on hold at your library.  It was a lovely time we spent in Owosso as there were tons of stuff to see and do at the festival.
