Library programs ‘off shelf’

The Suttons Bay Bingham District Library has announced the spring lineup for its “Art Off the Shelf” program.

Local poet Carrie Sharp hosts the program which features a questionand answer session with authors and artists.

Last month furniture-maker Bill Perkins of Suttons Bay was the subject of the first in the series, sponsored by the Suttons Bay-Bingham District Library and the Bay Theatre with funding from the Suttons Bay Art Festival.

Next Thursday, March 16, Jerry Dennis and Glenn Wolff will provide a retrospective on their longtime collaboration in celebration of nature.

Dennis and Wolff have won numerous awards and have received acclaim from readers and reviewers around the world for their many books, as well as for their essays and illustrations in such publications as The New York Times, The Village Voice, Smithsonian, Audubon, Wildlife Conservation, Sports Afield and Orion.

The April 20 program will feature Paul Stebleton.

A Hopwood award and Gwendolyn Brooks award winner, Stebleton is a book collector and a published author who began collecting books in college. He is the owner of Landmark Books.

Tanya Anne Crosby, a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, will be featured on Thursday, May 18.

Crosby has penned 25 novels and has been featured in magazines such as People, Romantic Times and Publisher’s Weekly. Her books have been translated into eight languages.

The “Art Off the Shelf” programs have 5 p.m. starting time and are held at the Bay Theatre in Suttons Bay.
