On Thursday, April 23 at 12:30 p.m., John Otterbacher, author of Sailing Grace, will visit the Cascade Township branch of KDL. Otterbacher will share stories of the experiences that formed the basis for his book.
In Sailing Grace, Otterbacher, a former Michigan State Representative and Senator from Grand Rapids, chronicles his battle with heart disease. In this gritty account of his experience with eight heart surgeries in eight months, Otterbacher shows how trauma can be a wakeup call. From the hospital to his sailboat Grace, Otterbacher has faced and surmounted profound adversity.
Sailing Grace was a 2008 Michigan Notable Book, and Otterbacher visited the Sand Lake/Nelson Township branch last year as part of the Michigan Notable Authors tour.
