Book Signing: Bootstrapper by Mardi Link

  • From noon to two pm on Saturday, April 12th, author Mardi Link will sign personalized copies of her book, Bootstrapper.  This memoir, which takes place on a Traverse City farm, provides the reader with laughter, tears and everything in between. As Link weathered a divorce, raised three sons and kept her farm through thin and thinner, the universal truths and personal insights offered make it clear why this Northern Michigan mother and farmer was so triumphant.

DVD Launch Party: Dogman 2: Wrath Of The Litter

  • Rich Brauer will be hosting a launch party to celebrate the release of Dogman 2: Wrath Of The Litter on DVD.  The party will be held on Saturday, April 12th from 5 to 7 pm.  Dogman 2 continues the story of the Northern Michigan myth first introduced in the original Dogman movie, also made by Brauer’s film production company, Brauer Productions.  Both Dogman films were shot in Northern Michigan.

Book Signing: Viola Doyle: or An Unconventional Gift by Amy Lynn Spitzley

  • Author Amy Lynn Spitzley will sign her novel Viola Doyle on Saturday, April 12th from 1 to 3 pm.  Viola Doyle is a young-adult fantasy-mystery novel focused on the protagonist Viola, a strong-willed heroine charged with solving a uniquely Victorian-style mystery.  Drawing on a wide range of influences, Spitzley’s book is a bona fide page-turner.
