‘The Faygo Book’ named a Michigan Notable for 2019

We are bubbling over with excitement that “The Faygo Book” was chosen as a “Michigan Notable Book” for 2019. The Library of Michigan chose 20 notables out of 300 nominations, and “The Faygo Book” is on the list. Winners are chosen by the Michigan Department of Education and the Library of Michigan.

lm_MNB_0310_logo_311344_7“The Faygo Book” is in some excellent company with Michael Hodges’ “Building the Modern World: Albert Kahn in Detroit,” also from Wayne State University Press, and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha’s “What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City,” about the Flint water crisis.

The Michigan Notable Books authors are invited to an event at the Library of Michigan on April 27 and will share visits to 50 Michigan libraries and schools.

“The Faygo Book” will be representing the Michigan Notable Books with Essexville Jr. High students at a Garber High school event on May 14, the Three Rivers Library on May 16, the Charlevoix Library on June 4 and the Presque Isle County Library’s Rogers City branch on June 6.

Hey, pop in on the tour! We’d love to see you.

I wrote "The Faygo Book," published in October, 2018, after building up a tremendous thirst on my previous book with Wayne State University Press, "Coney Detroit." Since "The Faygo Book" came out, I have been traveling all over Michigan talking about Faygo, answering questions and hearing some wonderful stories about this great pop.
