4. RELAY FOR LIFE OF CANTON
Where/When: Heritage Park, Canton Township; 10 a.m. Saturday until 10 a.m. Sunday.
Why Go: Relay for Life helps local communities take action against a disease that will affect one in four families. Teams of co-workers, colleagues, families and friends will camp out overnight and take turns walking laps around the pond at Heritage Park. Local cancer survivors will participate in a survivor's lap and the luminaria ceremony at dusk will honor and remember loved ones lost to the disease. Money raised from the event will help provide access to up-to-date cancer information, day-to-day help and emotional support.
5. BOOK SIGNING/RECEPTION FOR CALDECOTT MEDAL WINNERS
Where/When: The Next Chapter Bookstore & Bistro, 141 E. Main St., Northville; Saturday from 2-4 p.m.

Stead, author and illustrator, respectively, of A Sick Day for Amos McGee, a children's book and winner of the 2011 Caldecott Medal. The Caldecott Medal is awarded every year by the American Library Association for the best illustrated children's book.
