Author Signing: Peter Marabell with Murder on Lake Street

Saturday, June 13th, 12PM to 2PM

Michael Russo’s friend and mentor, Frank Marshall, is the target of an assassination attempt one damp autumn night in Petoskey.  The case goes cold fast.  The police have no suspects and no leads, so Russo begins his own investigation.  It is quickly apparent that the attack was not a random shooting but a professional hit.  Russo vows to hold those involved accountable by whatever means necessary.  He tracks the shooters, tries to find out who ordered the hit, and manages to antagonize anyone who gets in his way.  

Author Signing: Dr. Tunishai Ford with This is a Comma in Your Life, not a Period

Saturday, June 13th, 4PM to 6PM

Experience this life-changing saga that will leave you refreshed, renewed and inspired to face life's most challenging times. THIS IS A COMMA IN YOUR LIFE, NOT A PERIOD will take you to a level of faith and hope never experienced before.  Dr. Ford has also written I MISS THE HUGS BUT NOT THE HURTS.  In a world filled with intoxicating pleasures and enthralling diversions, we sometimes stray from our God-given purpose. We sometimes substitute true worship of the Lord with worship of his created things--entertainment, hobbies, sports, material goods, families, careers--to find fulfillment. In the end, however, we are still left unfulfilled because we were never made for the things of this world. We were made by God to bring him glory.
