Author Signing: Ingar Rudholm, Traveling Circus

Sunday, February 19, 2017 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Flynn Parkes feels alone in the small town of Whitehall, Michigan. After being bullied in high school and having an argument with his parents, Flynn runs away from his problems. On a bike ride into town, he’s kidnapped by Salvatore, a crooked ringmaster of a mysterious traveling circus. During his journey, Flynn is shot out of a cannon, nearly eaten by lions, and almost drowns. He also builds friendships with Albert the fortuneteller, Cordelia the beautiful mermaid, two odd clowns named Sammy and Buster, and Marcel, a giant with a feisty temper and huge muscles. Soon, Flynn discovers another side to Salvatore’s circus world—one that’s darker and more corrupt than he thought. Using the power of imagination and the fortuneteller's magic, Flynn struggles to break free from his cage of insecurity and the ringmaster’s clutches. And maybe, just maybe, he can muster the courage to win the heart of a girl named Rena.,204,203,200_.jpg

Author Signing: John Scott, A Guy Like Me

Known as a willing-and-able fighter and bruiser in the league, John Scott was a surprising and tongue-and-cheek nominee for the 2016 NHL All-Star Game. He’d been in the league for over eight NHL seasons, playing for teams such as the Wild, Blackhawks, Rangers, Sabres, and the Sharks. Scott’s best attribute as an NHL player was dropping his gloves—never the best player, the 260 pounder did become the most feared fighter in the NHL, racking up extensive penalty minutes.
