5:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Poetry Reading at the Orchard
Kalamazoo poetry author, Jennifer Clark, will be reading from her newest book "Johnny Appleseed: The Slice & Times of John Chapman." This lovely book is history entwined in poetry and while you will see that you know things about Johnny Appleseed, there is much behind the man, John Chapman.
These events have sprung from the desire to help our local Fennville Elementary School start a rather ambitious fundraiser called National BookTrust. This program allows young students in our community to take home and keep books for continued learning outside of the classroom. We personally feel like nothing contributes to our kids education more than enabling them to learn to love to read! All of the proceeds are donated to the Fennville Elementary School’s National BookTrust program in hopes to keep this program going for our future leaders!
Your ticket includes an amouse bouche, dinner & dessert, a signed copy of "Johnny Appleseed: The Slice & Times of John Chapman," poetry reading by Jennifer and a reader/author question and answer session.
Beverages available for purchase at event.
