Book Launch

Local author, Lorie Tensen, is celebrating the publication of her autobiography with a Book Launch Party. Lorie writes...


"I recently wrote my very first book - an autobiography - and I am thrilled that it will be published and made available for sale on August 25. This has been an amazing journey; it was a very difficult book for me to write, but it was necessary and cathartic. Please join me in celebrating this achievement at a VIP Book Launch Party and book signing on August 25 from 6 pm - 10 pm. Local Grand Rapids musician, Karisa Sprite Wilson will provide music from 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm during the meet and greet/book signing portion of the evening." 


Tickets are available on Lorie's website at We encourage you to join her for dinner and drinks at this party at the Pony. (Please note that food and/or beverages are not included in the ticket price.)
