Meet your favorite Michigan authors

You may just get to meet your favorite Michigan author at Kalamazoo: An Evening with Notables on Oct. 18 at the Kalamazoo Public Library, 315 S. Rose St.

This event celebrates the Library of Michigan’s Notable Books program, which annually selects up to 20 books either written by a Michigan resident or about Michigan or the Great Lakes. Some of those notable authors will be on hand to sign their books and talk with guests, including 2018 notables Karen Dionne, William Rapai, Stephen Mack Jones, Joel Stone, Michael G. Smith, Cindy Hunter Morgan, Amy Emberling and Frank Carollo.

Also on hand will be two notables from previous years, fiction writers Bonnie Jo Campbell and Wade Rouse (who wrote as Viola Shipman).

The event is free, but registration is required. To register or for more information, visit kpl.gov/notables or call 553-7800.
