Author Signing: David Richarde, The Yellow Dog River

Saturday, June 2, 2018 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

In this book a river reveals, through story, myth and everyday events, a "blueprint" of spiritual and material life, based on water and tone. At once universal and deeply personal it is delivered in a very disarming way, allowing the reader to come along on a journey of humor and extraordinary meaning.

Author Signing: Linda Hughes, Secret of the Asylum

Thursday, June 7, 2018 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

It's 1921 in Traverse City, fifteen years after the disappearance of a child, and three women's lives intertwine as a web of lies unravels in a quest to solve the mystery of what happened to the boy. Elizabeth has been in an asylum since the disappearance of her son. Her daughter Meg is determined to find out why and what happened to her brother. And Abby, a Chippewa Indian fortune teller, has insight into everything that goes on in their small burgh. During an era of bootlegging, speakeasies, and changing times, their fates are woven together as their lives are forever transformed.
