DDHS Book Club: Detroitland by Richard Bak

Let's finish the book! I had to move the date to Wednesday the 14th, I hope that works for you!! We're back at the Ghost Bar since it's nearly a perfect setup for our purpose. Great reading so far, if you haven't started the book yet, pick up at chapter 18 and join us!

    The book was very interesting - I learned l a lot about different Mayors, sports teams, climates, etc. I would recommend it to everyone!

    Got there at 6 - obviously too early -
    Door guy said there was a large group scheduled for 6:30 ...
    Went to Cliff Bell's - dropped off some CD's, papers ...
    Came back 6:30 - Wrong Group -
    Assumed I had wrong day ?
    Went to next location - at 7:30 found my 7 pm note -
    too late - had a 7:45 - Wayne State ...
    ? see you next time ?

    The Book Club was fun and interesting - I'm glad I was a part of it tonight! Loved reading "Detroitland" and discussing our favorite chapters and/or incidents :) Also, I would like to suggest the book by Betty DeRamus called "Forbidden Fruit" for a time in the future.

    Just stumbled across this, sounds really cool, does it cost to get in, or just what you drink?

    Oh, and if you still wanted that tour, you could probably get a staff member to show you around :)
