    Name: Book Signing! Written by Carol Lewis
    Date: April 20, 2019
    Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Local Author Writes Children’s Book
    Carol Lewis has lived in the Reed City/Hersey area for most of her life.
    She graduated from Reed City High School and attended Ferris State College (yes...before it became Ferris State University)!
    She recently retired from her job as a Special Education Secretary for the Mecosta-Osceola ISD after over 30 years of service.
    She has always loved children’s books. One of her top ‘bucket list’ wishes was to one day write a book of her own.
    Thanks to her grandson...that wish came true!
    The story idea began when her then...two year old grandson...had a pesky crumb stuck on his thumb during lunch time.
    By the time he was finished eating...She had the title of the book in her head as well as the story outline.
    Now that the book is finished...she looks forward to sharing it with as many people as possible.
    Carol will be speaking about her book on the Band of Local’s Radio Show on Friday, April 19th.
    Also, please join Carol for a book signing event at the Big Rapids Old Pioneer and Emporium on Saturday, April 20th from 1:00-4:00.
    What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon then perusing this wonderful store searching for the perfect chocolates for your Easter baskets as well as picking up a little book for those special children in your life?
