This pop tour is taking me all over Michigan

Th writer, in a Faygo shirt, stands in front of a roadside billboard that says Joe Grimm, The Faygo Book, Thursday, May 16, 6-7 p.m.
This is as close as I will ever come to having my name up in lights and I am as happy as can be. Thank you, Three Rivers!

What a time it has been for “The Faygo Book” as it began its Michigan Notable Book tour.
After visiting a school and four libraries one week, I started the next week as one of four featured speakers for the Metro-Detroit Book and Author Society on May 20 and a nightcap at Green Brain Comics in Dearborn. We’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Students at Essexville Middle School
Mrs. Carrie Waterman, the media specialist at Essexville Middle School near Bay City, landed a performance about The Faygo Book for her school. The students took right to it, studying the book’s pop quizzes in class and designing their own Faygo flavors and bottles. We had a blast.

Faygo supplied glass bottles of its cane-sugar classics for about 100 tables at the Metro-Detroit Book and Author Society lunch in Livonia on May 20. Nine-hundred fifty people attended. Thank you, Faygo.

I’ll be in God’s Country in early June:
June 3: Traverse Area District Library, 6:30 p.m.
June 4: Charlevoix Public Lbrary (Michigan Notable Book stop), 6:30 p.m.
June 5: Petoskey District Library, 5:30 p.m.
June 6: Rogers City, Presque Isle District Library (Michigan Notable Book stop), 6:30 p.m.

You can catch me in other places, too. They’e listed on the Wayne State University Press events calendar.

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.
