'It Rained in the Desert' by Jocelyn Dettloff

Join us to meet Jocelyn and hear her story of tragedy, humor, joy and adventure. Reservations can be made through the information help desk number (616-784-2007) at the main branch or at kdl.org. The cost is $10:00 for members, $12:00 for non-members and $5.00 to just listen to the author speak. A box lunch is included in the cost.
