Local author Karen Dybis returns to the Miller Library to share the story of The Witch of Delray: Rose Veres & Detroit’s Infamous 1930’s Murder Mystery.

During the Great Depression in Detroit, a mysterious murder at a boardinghouse led to an investigation of Hungarian immigrant Rose Veres. Amid accusations of witchcraft, Rose and her son Bill were convicted of the brutal killing and suspected in a dozen more. Their cries of innocence went unheeded – until one lawyer, determined to seek justice, took on the case.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

The Faygo Book is the social history of a company that has forged a bond with a city and its residents for more than a century. The story of Faygo, Detroit’s beloved soda pop, begins over a hundred years ago with two Russian immigrant brothers who were looking to get out of the baking business.

Author Joe Grimm mixes the ingredients of a successful beverage company confected in dicey times in a boom-and-bust town. The Faygo Book is the story of a pop, a people, and a place. These stories and facts will tickle the taste buds and memories of Detroiters and Faygo lovers everywhere. There WILL be a pop quiz!
