Michigan Notable Book Author Talk-

Terror in the City of Champions:  Murder, Baseball, and the Secret Society  that Shocked Depression-era Detroit

By Tom Stanton

May 25, 2017 / 6:00PM

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.

All are welcome to this NO COST event!  Register by calling 248-846-6550.
