All trails lead to authors at B&N


By Cynthia Price

For the fifth time, Barnes and Noble has held its Trail of Michigan Authors to promote the “book fair” benefiting Hackley Public Library.

B&N holds book fairs throughout the year where a special code allows a percentage of purchases to go to a given charity.

This year there were 45 talented Michigan writers in the house Oct. 5, some of whom were returning from past years, but many of whom are new, said H. William Ruback (shown below), an author, B&N employee co-founder of the event with Ramona Opperman. (See Examiner 10/18/2017).

Authors represented all manner of genres, from hard-hitting mysteries to Christian books to child and young adult publications.
