Launch Party! 100 Things to Do in Traverse City Before You Die


Join us on Saturday, April 7th, 3-6 pm!

Travel writer Kim Schneider's latest topic is a little closer to home.  She's compiled a list of the top places, tastes, activities, and places to visit while in Traverse City in her new book, 100 Things to Do in Traverse City Before You Die.  While it's a great resource for visitors to the area, it's also got locals taking a new look at what they may have missed, as Kim told Marc Schollet in an interview for UpNorthLive.  "It's been fun to hear friends who have lived here their whole lives say I have some new ideas."

Whether a longtime resident or a weekend visitor, one thing you won't want to miss is the book's launch party!

On April 7th, we'll be bringing the book to life right here at Brilliant Books with as many of the 100 things to do that we can cram into our little bookstore.  We’ll be having prizes, demos and giveaways.  Come by and start ticking off your 100 things to do.

  Get a taste of local restaurants, plan a trip to the theatre, and map out your next adventure in Traverse City.  Prizes already confirmed include two tickets to David Sedaris at Interlochen on April 17th!

Of course, Kim will also be on hand to sign and personalize a copy of her book for you. 

Can't make it?  We'd be happy to get a copy signed for you.  Just preorder and let us know how you'd like it inscribed.  We'll take care of the rest!
