Past Event Replays

A Conversation with author Kate Moore

We were fortunate to chat with author Kate Moore, who wrote The Radium Girls and "The Woman They Could Not Silence." Softspoken and engaging, Kate was lovely and shared with us how she found the women who painted with radium and the story of Elizabeth Packard, who was sent to a mental institution in the 1860s and now this oppression is still taking place today. It's definitely worth watching. She also talked about what's next. 

Watch the conversation at the left. 

Reading from author Erin Bartels at book launch event

On Saturday, February 19, Bay City native and author, shared her insights about writing, publishing, and her new book - The Girl Who Could Breathe Under Water. Over 20 book lovers sat enthralled, listening to Erin's backstory, a section from her new book, and happenings from a writer's life.

Watch Erin read a section from a beginning of her book. You can purchase The Girl Who Could Breathe Under Water at the bookstore inside The Sunshine Shoppe - 925 N. Water Street in Bay City or online using the link above.  

A conversation with Caseen Gaines,
author of "Footnotes"

Set primarily in 1920s New York City, Footnotes is the remarkable true story of the Black artists behind the unlikely Broadway sensation that brought jazz into the mainstream and helped usher in the Harlem Renaissance—in the aftermath of a World War, decimated economy, worldwide pandemic, and the most violent period of racial violence since the Civil War.

Gaines provides a behind-the-scenes look at these amazingly talented men and women that defied the age and changed history. Enjoy his telling of how it all happened and see clips of the actors performing early in the career and at the end. 

Have a great place in the Great Lakes Bay region where you'd like to see Leopard Print Books, Gifts & Curiosities pop up?

Let me know where and who to contact and I'll investigate it.
