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.

Registration is required. Register here or call 586.751.5377.

Join local author Tom Stanton as he discusses his award-winning book Terror in the City of Champions: Murder, Baseball, and the Secret Society that Shocked Depression-era Detroit.

Detroit, mid-1930s: The secretive, Klan-like Black Legion was executing a wicked plan of terror, murdering enemies, flogging associates, and contemplating armed rebellion. The Legion boasted tens of thousands of members across the Midwest, among them politicians and prominent citizens – even, possibly, a beloved athlete.

Award-winning author Tom Stanton weaves a stunning tale of history, crime, and sports. Richly portraying 1930s America, Terror in the City of Champions features a pageant of colorful figures: iconic athletes, sanctimonious criminals, scheming industrial titans, a bigoted radio priest, a love-smitten celebrity couple, J. Edgar Hoover, and two future presidents, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. It is a rollicking true story set at the confluence of hard luck, hope, victory, and violence.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
