Writers' Minute: A mother lives off the land and laughs about it

In today's Writers' Minute on 7&4 News Today, local author Mardi Link introduces her new book "Bootstrapper".

Her book is her own memoir about needing to live off the land for a year with her children. She says it actually has quite a bit of humor in it and that a lot of parents will get a kick out of it.

Link also has several upcoming appearances in bookstores around Traverse City where she'll be signing books and be greeting readers.

Her upcoming book launch party will be Saturday June 15th from 7 to 9 PM at Brilliant Books in Traverse City.
