Local Author Visit at the Ortonville Library

Author Michael J. Larson (Mike) grew up in the middle of the ‘bump and now lives right on the top of the ‘bump in Wheaton!  Our Public Library (Vicki Bartz) always has a full calendar of activities and author visits are of course on that list.  It is always fun to see one of our very own area authors featured!

Mike will be at the Ortonville Library on November 27th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. for a book signing (and some fun!)  for his children’s book “The First Advent:  Stories and Activities”  (this is Mike’s seventh book)

Other Dates & Locations are:
Clinton Bank on November 20th 11:00 to 2:00 p.m.
Graceville Public Library, November 26th 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

This newly released book is designed to prepare children’s hearts and minds for the arrival of baby Jesus.  The First Advent contains stories and activities for each of the twenty-five days of Advent.  (More info link: A Grandchild)

At the Library events, there will be some additional fun:
At 5:30 pm author Michael J. Larson will describe how his new book “The First Advent, Stories and Activities” became a reality. Following that the author will read several pages from the Advent book.  —  Then the fun begins! Each grandchild and grandparent team will receive an activity page from the newly released book. When the author says “go” all paired participants will complete the activity as quickly as possible. The winning team will win a free autographed copy of “The First Advent, Stories and Activities”.  Link to full info:  TFA press release
