That’s one big Faygo bottle

Man in wild Coca-Cola shirt and ballcap holds a 5-foot-tall sign shaped like a Faygo bottle.
Wight brought this like-new sign to a “Faygo Book” presentation, but his tastes clearly go beyond Faygo.

You meet the nicest people at “Faygo Book” presentations. I know. I have given more than 100 in 10 months, having taken off from mid-June through mid-August.

One of the treats is people who bring in some of their Faygo treasures, like this huge advertising sign displayed by owner Jeff Wight. He brought it to the Aug. 27, 2019, talk at the Lincoln Park Library. It was a nice way for me to get back on the Faygo tour.

Wight and his sign made the whole evening more special.

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.
