Michigan Chiller & American Chiller author, Jonathan Rand
Pathfinder Community Library in Baldwin hosted a presentation by Michigan Chiller author Jonathan Rand on Saturday, October 5th. Over 90 children and 50 adults were entertained by his story telling skills. The audience learned about writing their own stories and how to also enjoy a good scary story.
Mr. Rand talked about the importance of reading and visiting the library. He said everyone has a story within themselves and all you have to do is write it down. Mr. Rand met personally with those that wanted to meet him. Children were able to have their picture taken with him and he was available to sign t-shirts and books.
Pathfinder Community Library provided each child age 7-17 with a free Michigan Chiller book and T-shirt. This program was one of our most successful programs!
Mr. Rand lives in northern Michigan and has sold over 400 million books worldwide.
