More Info

The Detroit Historical Museum’s Third Thursday speaker series continues in July with "Detroit 67: Through the Lens of Fiction" by Susan Messer   Authors of historical fiction walk a delicate line: they must accurately represent the facts and forces of an era, but their overriding concerns are emotional truths and lived experience. In this program, author Susan Messer will discuss and read from her novel Grand River and Joy (University of Michigan Press, 2009). Named after the notable intersection in Detroit, the story explores the intersections between races, classes and neighborhoods that, among many other factors, drove the city to the boiling point in 1967.   Attendance is free, but pre-registration is encouraged. To register for a presentation, please contact Charnae Sanders, Public Programs Coordinator, at 313.833.0277 or charnaes@detroithistorical.org.
