The Reed City Area had a very special visit from local author, Anne-Marie Oomen, on Tuesday, September 15th!


Anne-Marie stopped at the Reed City Depot and shared heartfelt recollections and humorous anecdotes from her popular memoir, Love Sex & 4-H with a group of about thirty people from the Reed City and surrounding area!  Her stories resonated with many of the attendees who experienced coming of age in the 1960's, the laments and rewards of "4-H'ers" everywhere and the the experience of growing up in a rural Michigan.  Anne-Marie infused her talk with energy, humor and style and even drew names for dish towels in commemoration of her first 4-H project!


The book talk transitioned into a book signing and discussion time with Anne-Marie.  Attendees were able to purchase Love, Sex & 4-H or one of her other three books.


Special thanks to Bob and Sandy Duke, members of the band, Smallmouth, for expertly playing instrumental versions of 1960's hit songs while Anne-Marie signed books.  


Thanks for all the people who attended this literary event on Tuesday!  The Library is encouraged to hear such positive feedback already and is honored to be able to provide arts and cultural events to the Reed City Area.
