Book signings coming to Berkley

> Berkley – Since regional art fairs are still in hibernation for the next couple of months, Yellow Door Art Market is jump starting the season with an Art Fair Fever Open House on Saturday, March 5 from 10-6.
> Locals in need of an art injection will find a large variety of garden goods, photography, hip clothing & handbags, creative jewelry, pottery and sweet smelling soaps, candles and more. Many of the artists will be present to talk about their craft including Dena Gillespie of Clawson who creates cool wire sculptures. "It's nice to have an opportunity this time of year where I can craft one-of-a-kind personalized wire words for interested art lovers" says Gillespie.
> In addition, Michigan authors will be signing copies of their books, including writer and photographer Pete Wurdock. His book, Places I Hide takes the reader on an intimate and bracing sojourn through the largely untrammeled beauty of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Peter will be available from 11am-1pm. Margaret Mason will also be debuting her latest release, These Hands which is about African Americans who worked at the Detroit Wonder Bread factory in the 1950's. Margaret will be present from 1-3pm.
> Other festivities include free artist-made goodies with purchases over thirty dollars, fifteen percent off all items and Michigan made sips and snacks served throughout the day.
