Within Detroit’s multi layered history lie stories both familiar and hidden. Think of Cadillac’s 1701 landing, the 1812 conquest by the British, and the mobility revolution unleashed by Henry Ford. But there was also the little known reality of slavery, race riots in 1863 and 1943, and array of unlikely frienships, assorted scoundrels, and ingenious entrepreneurs.

This presentation will highlight these and other antidotes included in Paul Vachon’s new book, Detroit: An Illustrated Timeline.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Registration is required. Register here or call 586.751.5377.

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the final game ever played at Tiger Stadium (September 27, 1999). Doc Fletcher‘s latest book is The History of Tiger Stadium: A Love Letter to Baseball at Michigan & Trumbull, honoring The Cathedral at The Corner where – together with great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts, siblings, children, godchildren, and friends – we have cheered our Detroit Tigers. Although the structure is gone, the memories remain.

Doc will share stories from the book of the characters on the field, in the stands, and those in the neighborhoods surrounding the ballpark, as well as about the broadcasters who brought the action to us when we couldn’t be there ourselves.

Registration is required. Register here or call 586.751.5377.
