Independent Bookstore Day (Okemos) (Saturday, May 2 at 3pm)
Independent Bookstore Day: Michigan Notable Panel

Each of our stores is hosting author panels featuring fantastic authors from the state of Michigan in honor of the first national Independent Bookstore Day! Our Meridian Mall store is pleased to welcome 2015 Michigan Notable Book honorees Anna Clark, Diane DeCillis, Barbara Rylko-Bauer, and Stephen Terry for a panel discussion.

In A Detroit Anthology, editor Anna Clark, a Detroit journalist, has gathered an eclectic assortment of essays, poems, and photographs that offer from-the-heart and on-the-ground views of life in America's Motor City. * This book is available in store only.

Diane DeCillis’ poetry has been nominated for two Pushcart Prizes and the Best American Poetry series. Her powerful, funny and sometimes self-deprecating collection, Strings Attached, considers all the ways that strings bind us in relationships, and explores their constant tightening and loosening.

Barbara Rylko-Bauer is a medical anthropologist and MSU professor who was nominated for her biography of her mother,A Polish Doctor in the Nazi Camps: My Mother's Memories of Imprisonment, Immigration, and a Life Remade. Applying her anthropologist skills to her family history, Rylko-Bauer constructs an intimate ethnography that weaves that personal family narrative against a twentieth-century historical backdrop.

Stephen Terry is an MSU graduate who worked on that campus for 32 years. Content for his book, Michigan Agricultural College Campus Life 1900-1925: A Postcard Tour, came in part from his own private 1000-plus card collection.

About Saint Anything:

Sydney’s handsome, charismatic older brother, Peyton, has always dominated the family, demanding and receiving the lion’s share of their parents’ attention. And when Peyton’s involvement in a drunk driving episode sends him to jail, Sydney feels increasingly rootless and invisible, worried that her parents are unconcerned about the real victim, the boy Peyton hit and seriously injured. Meanwhile, Sydney becomes friends with the Chathams, a warm, close-knit, eccentric family, and their friendship helps her understand that she is not responsible for Peyton’s mistakes.
