Author Signing: Susan Steen Ciolek, Imprinted Survivor

Saturday, October 20, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month!  Cancer survivor Sue Ciolek invites us to travel with her as she journeys into her family history and her faith, searching for the source of the strength she found to fight her illness. Her journey shows us that there is much to be gained from our connection with those who have preceeded us and, through our perseverence in suffering, much we can pass on to those who follow us.


Author Signing: Paul Wheelock, Love's Finest Battle

Saturday, October 20, 2018 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

When Paul and Becky, two Northwest Michigan high schoolers, met for the first time at a dance, they knew immediately that they would marry. As young marrieds, they faced hard decisions about money, morals, and faith. They also produced six amazing sons, and always a joyful home to raise them in. But the truest test of Paul and Becky’s bond came when Becky was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. What followed in the weeks, months, and years after is a story sure to inspire — about the bravery and selflessness of a woman, the steadfast support of a man, and the knowledge that love and God’s love conquer all.

Saturday, October 27, 2018 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

LESSONS FROM AN IMPERFECT WORLD is both devotional and motivational. Its stories provide comfort and hope to broken hearts and troubled minds. As a pastor, I affirm this literary gift in the practice of ministries. It proclaims love. It restores spirit. It is life. - Rev. Dr. Wallace H. Mayton, III, Associate Pastor Memorial Presbyterian Church


Author Signing: Mary Roessler, The Surprising Spring of Cyndarria Rose Thornwell

Saturday, October 27, 2018 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

It’s early spring and the peepers are singing happily, but Cyndarria Rose Thornwell is stuck at her desk, faced with writing an essay on the world’s most boring topic: What do you want to be when you grow up? Ugh! After leaving the essay on her desk to finish later, she returns to find it has mysteriously disappeared and is nowhere to be found. This begins a series of surprises for Cyndarria, some of which are much scarier than the loss of her essay: an arsonist sets fire to her school and Cyndarria becomes involved in an unexpected and frightening way. At her first track meet, she unwittingly gains the unwanted attention of a mysterious stranger, and her grandfather Paddy, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, disappears one night in the freezing rain. Amid all the scary surprises, however, there are some which are happy, exciting, and ultimately rewarding


Author Signing: Valerie Winans, Road Trip With Remington Beagle: Michigan To Alaska and Back

Saturday, October 27, 2018 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Take a road trip with me, Remington Beagle, from Traverse City, Michigan to various destinations in Alaska. As the head beagle in charge of this adventure, I will guide the reader along the famous Alaska Highway (also known as the Alcan). This recreational vehicle journey continues on some of the most scenic and exciting roads on the continent making this a unique travel log for people who love camping and storytelling beagles. This Alaska joyride takes us as far north as Barrow, Alaska (the most northern community on the North American Continent) to Homer, Alaska in the south and destinations in between. As you ramble with us along these roads and share the Alaska experience from a dog's eye view, you will be enticed to make this trek on your own. I will be happy to join you as I never tire of neither the Alaska experience nor the roads that take me there.
