Some 80 people showed up at the Kentwood branch on Saturday to hear 18 Michigan authors talk about the craft of writing and the challenges of publishing. Attendees said they were inspired by what was shared and the authors were thrilled to be able to share their knowledge.
There are 4 more solo appearances through mid-May scheduled for various KDL branches as part of our Celebrate the Mitten authors series. Come out and support Michigan authors!
