BIG RAPIDS — People lined up at Artworks on Thursday to get their copy of author Carlleen Rose’s “A Promise Kept – See You on the Flip Side.” The owner of The Old Pioneer Store and Emporium in Big Rapids wrote the book after her mentor, Jack Batdorff, made the promise to her before his death in 2020.

The book signing took place at the Jack Batdorff Gallery at Artworks.

“I wanted to do my book signing in the style of Jack Batdorff,” Rose told The Pioneer. This included serving attendees “some of Jack’s favorite hors d’oeuvres”.

The book is available at the Old Pioneer Store and Emporium in downtown Big Rapids and on Amazon.
