As part of the Library of Michigan’s 2009 Michigan Notable Authors Tour, author Tom Springer will visit the Sand Lake/Nelson Township branch of the Kent District Library on Monday, April 20 at 6:30 p.m. for an evening of conversation and book signing.
Looking for Hickories: The Forgotten Wildness of the Rural Midwest is Springer’s “ode to the people, natural beauty, and lore of the Midwest, a place where bustling communities neighbor a fragile mosaic of quiet woods, fertile meadows and miles of farmland.”
Tom Springer writes from his farmhouse in Three Rivers, Michigan, and works fulltime as a program manager for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation in Battle Creek. He’s been a magazine editor, video producer, speechwriter and NPR commentator and retired as a master sergeant from the Michigan Army National Guard. He holds a master’s degree in environmental journalism from Michigan State University.
Eighteen authors whose works were chosen as 2009 Michigan Notable Books will visit nearly 50 libraries throughout the state during the 2009 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 Tom Springer to the Kent District Library on April 20!
