National award-winning children’s author, Jeffery Schatzer, will be signing his books and speaking about writing, reading and life themes, from teamwork to bullying, at the Sand Lake/Nelson Township Library, in Sand Lake, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 14. His close resemblance to Santa Claus has made his picture books about the jolly old elf come alive, as well as his historical chapter books about Michigan’s underground railroad for older children. Childen and parents are invited to come and enjoy some treats with this special Michigan author. Sponsored by Friends of the Sand Lake/Nelson Township Library.
