Every year, the Library of Michigan selects up to 20 of the most notable books, either written by a Michigan resident or about Michigan.  We are honored to have Viola Shipman (a.k.a. Wade Rouse), talk about his Michigan Notable book The Charm Bracelet.  The Charm Bracelet revolves around a keepsake bracelet owned by an elderly grandmother.  Each charm is a marker for a family memory that she fears will go unknown by her daughter and granddaughter.  Three women rediscover a passion for living as each charm from the bracelet changes their lives.
