Michigan author Albert Bell will visit the Plainfield Township branch on Sunday, March 11 at 1:30 PM to discuss how he bases fictional characters on real-life people, and to sign and sell copies of his books.
Bell teaches Hope College students about the ancient world, especially Rome, so it’s an era he writes about, both in fiction and nonfiction. Exploring the New Testament World has been used in a number of college and university classes. His mystery novels include Kill Her Again, All Roads Lead to Murder: A Case from the Notebooks of Pliny the Younger and Death Goes Dutch: A Wooden Shoe Mystery. He classifies them as being in the “amateur sleuth category, and in the subcategories of romantic and academic.” He also wrote an historical mystery novel for ages 9–11, titled The Secret of the Lonely Grave, and has a second children’s book in the works.

Bell’s appearance is part of KDL’s Celebrate the Mitten author series, which includes more than a dozen published authors from around the state appearing at various branches through May, and an author showcase on Saturday, April 21 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM at the Kentwood branch.
