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 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fans can bring their own book for Mr. Rand to sign or purchase a copy at the store.
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,” said 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. For more information on Johnathan Rand, please visit http://americanchillers.com/.
