Schuler’s on board for this year’s Celebration of the Book

Annual Celebration Hosts Authors Near and Far

The Grand Rapids Public Library’s annual festivities routinely attract some of the most exciting faces in today’s literary landscape to visit and share the stories of their lives and on their pages. On Saturday, October 17, from 10:00am to 6:00pm, the main branch of the GRPL hosts a full docket of guest speakers, including former Entertainment Weekly reporter and award-winning novelist Gillian Flynn, New York Times bestselling author Connie Briscoe, Edgar-winning mystery writer C.J. Box, and award-winning journalist and author Dave Cullen. Many well known local authors including Rose Hammond, Mardi Link, and Kris Riggle have also planned talks. In addition to authors, the knowledgeable library staff shares their recommendations with themed presentations. A full schedule of events, ranging from cooking to true crime and poetry slams to comic book illustrating, is available here.

Schuler Books will be there through it all, providing books by visiting authors, many of whom will be participating in book signing sessions following their presentations. 20% of every sale is donated to the Grand Rapids Public Library Foundation.

Make your way downtown when the colors peak this fall to enjoy an afternoon with friends and family at the Celebration of the Book, and support your local library with every purchase!
