Lunch and a Book May 2019

Join us May 9, 2019 as we discuss August Snow by Stephen Mack Jones. This month, we will have local author Jones present for discussion of this first book and the recent follow-up Lives Laid Away.

Stephen Mack Jones is a published poet, award-winning playwright and winner of the Kresge Arts in Detroit Literary Fellowship.  He was born and raised in Lansing, Michigan.  He moved to Detroit upon graduation from Michigan State University and has remained in the metro-Detroit area.  He worked in advertising and marketing communications before turning to fiction.  In 2018, the International Association of Crime Writers presented Stephen with the prestigious Hammett Prize for literary excellence in the field of crime writing.

Stephen’s first adult fiction book, August Snow, was named a ‘2018 Michigan Notable Book’ by the Library of Michigan. The Nero Wolfe Society awarded August Snow the 2018 Nero Award. 

Lives Laid Away is the second book in the August Snow series.

Canton Public Library wants you to Electrify Your Winter and Spark Your Year! We've created a whole packet of "Spark Sheets" to help you set goals and achieve great things. Our kids and family components are called Take Time Together. We will link to the relevant Spark Sheets as well as suggest activities you can do at home to grow in ways you never thought of.

 

There are so many amazing ways to show gratitude in your life. Hopefully, these suggestions will help get you started whether you have 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours to spend with each other.
