Authors and book lovers celebrated the Library of Michigan’s 20th Annual Notable Books program Saturday evening, the first of April. The Library Rotunda was circled with author tables, where 17 of this year’s 20 selected authors of the 2017 Notable Books conversed with Night for Notables guests.
Thomas Lynch, well known throughout Michigan’s vast writing community and across the country from many appearances on national public, cable and network television stations and radio was the evening’s keynote speaker. Mr. Lynch, often described as a cross between Garrison Keillor and W.B. Yeats is an American poet, essayist, and undertaker in Milford, Michigan. The audience of authors, donors, library staff and book lovers were captivated by Mr. Lynch’s talk which was at times hilarious, thought-provoking, emotional and personal.
