Sailing Through Difficulty

John Otterbacher will visit the Downtown Library Wednesday, May 21 at 7:00 p.m. Otterbacher, a resident of Michigan, a former Michigan Congressmen and Senator, and psychotherapist, will discuss his book, Sailing Grace, in which he chronicles his experiences battling heart disease, not wanting to give up, and moving past it. Integral and interwoven into his story are details about learning how to sail, honesty and a bit of self-deprecating humor on mishaps along the way, and eventually making voyages across the Atlantic. Sailing Grace is a 2008 Michigan Notable Book. Michigan Notable Books are a yearly list of books “reflective of Michigan's diverse ethnic, historical, literary, and cultural experience.” Copies will be available for purchase, and there will be an opportunity for books to be signed.
