Join us tomorrow evening, February 20 at 7pm, at the Main Library in the Auditorium for a special presentation by Michigan Notable Book award-winning author Jean Alicia Elster. Elster will share the process of researching and writing her latest book, providing the back story to the creation of The Colored Car. She will also explore the challenge of keeping historical authenticity within the plot while creating a storyline and characters that will engage twenty-first century readers. Interspersed throughout the presentation, she will read selections from various chapters of The Colored Car. This is a program that will engage the whole family, a sure bet for writers and readers of any age. A book signing will follow the presentation.
