Author Rick Bailey, a Freeland native, published his second book, The Enjoy Agenda, At Home and Abroad, on April 1 this year. Join us for an opportunity to meet him, learn more about his book, and have your own copies signed. The book will also be available for purchase. Part memoir and part travelogue, The Enjoy Agenda takes readers from Bailey's one-stoplight town in Michigan farm country to Stratford, England, to the French Concession in Shanghai, the Adriatic coast of Italy, and to a small village in the Republic of San Marino. He writes with humor and wit about how his life experiences reflect the issues of contemporary American life: environmental change, life in digital times, and the vicissitudes of arriving at ripe old age. Bailey is a retired English instructor who taught writing for thirty-eight years at Henry Ford Community College. He is the author or editor of several books on writing, including The Creative Writer's Craft, and is the author of American English, Italian Chocolate: Small Subjects of Great Importance (Nebraska, 2017).
