Children’s author in Sand Lake for book signing

Johnathan Rand, author of the tremendously popular Michigan Chillers, American Chillers and Freddy Fernortner series of children’s books, will be doing a book signing at Bay Leaf Used Books in Sand Lake on Saturday, December 8th, from 11 am to 1 pm.  Fans can bring their own book for Mr. Rand to sign or purchase a copy at Bay Leaf Used Books.

Rand’s Chiller series has a massive fan base across the country, but he is especially popular in his home state of Michigan.  Rand is on tour to promote the importance of reading for kids, who find titles like “Gruesome Ghouls of Grand Rapids” and “Mackinaw City Mummies” hard to resist.

“Teachers love Johnathan Rand as well,” says Gabe Konrad of Bay Leaf Used Books.  “He’s ended up on several reading lists because he’s a writer that appeals to both boys and girls; a little scary, a little adventuresome, and all fun.”  Rand’s Michigan Chillers and American Chillers series are targeted at third to fifth graders, while Freddy Fernortner: Fearless First Grader is popular with first to third graders.

Bay Leaf Used Books is located at 49 E Lake in downtown Sand Lake, one block west of Northland Drive.  They can be reached at (616) 636-8500.
