The Motor City boasts a long and sordid history of scoundrels, cheats and ne’er-do-wells. The wheeling and dealing prowess of founding father Antoine Cadillac is the stuff of legend. The slovenly and eccentric Augustus Brevoort Woodward, well known as a judge but better known as a drunkard, renamed himself, reshaped the city streets and then named them after himself, creating a legion of enemies along the way.

Join local author, historian, and creator of the Prohibition Detroit blog, Mickey Lyons for a talk about her book Wicked Detroit: the Scoundrels, Cads and Reprobates Who Shaped the City.

As a child growing up in Milford, Michigan, Lisa Ludwinski had three ambitions in life: to be a baker, a hair cutter, and a movie star… Boy oh boy, are we pie lovers lucky!
 
In the autumn of 2012, Ms. Ludwinski started Sister Pie out of the kitchen of her parents’ house. In 2015, after nearly 2.5 years of hard work, crowdfunding, grant applications, and a very dedicated intern, Sister Pie opened its brick and mortar location at Parker and Kercheval to a line out the door. Since then, Sister Pie has been featured in Bon Appetit, the New York Times, Eater, and Bloomberg News. Ms. Ludwinski was recently named a finalist for a 2019 James Beard Award!
 
The Miller Library is excited to welcome Ms. Ludwinski to discuss her 2019 Michigan Notable Award winning book Sister Pie: The Recipes & Stories of a Big-Hearted Bakery in Detroit.

Irene Miller, a Holocaust survivor, author, speaker, and educator will take you on a survival journey of which little is written and known about. You will sleep in the winter under an open sky on the no man’s land; you will freeze in a Siberian labor camp where the bears come to your door front.

In Uzbekistan, you will live on boiled grass or boiled onions, and shiver with malaria. You will spend years in orphanages. When this is over you will wonder how a child with this background grows up to become a positive, creative, accomplished woman with a joy of living and love to share.

Copies of Miller’s book, Into No Man’s Land will be available for purchase and signing.
