As part of the Library of Michigan’s 2008 Michigan Notable Authors Tour, author John Otterbacher will visit the Sand Lake/Nelson Township branch of the Kent District Library on Monday, May 12 at 6:30 p.m. for an evening of storytelling, book signing and conversation with guests.
Otterbacher, a former Michigan legislator from Grand Rapids, is the author of Sailing Grace which chronicles his battle with heart disease. After undergoing eight heart surgeries in eight months, Otterbacher found his way back to his sailboat Grace. He recounts his experience in this gritty account of profound adversity.
Fourteen authors whose works were chosen as 2008 Michigan Notable Books will visit nearly 60 libraries throughout the state during the 2008 tour. Michigan Notable Books are selected to reflect Michigan’s diverse ethnic, historical, literary and cultural experience. The program, which has roots back to Michigan Week 1991, was known as Read Michigan before 2004.
Join us in welcoming John Otterbach to the Kent District Library on May 12!
