The Last Hobo

Tuesday, April 11
6:30 p.m.

Join Detroit native and local author Dan Grajek as he discusses his new book, The Last Hobo.

In the summer of 1979, 19-year-old Ted acts out his dreams of being a hobo by hitchhiking (and hopping a train) across the United States. Ted's fantasy-fueled trip often collides with reality. The results are hilarious, nerve-racking, and inspiring.

Based on a true story, The Last Hobo is a colorful portrait of America and it's people during the dramatic transition from the seventies to the eighties. An older and wiser Ted narrates the tale with a unique perspective: he's from Detroit, the icon of America's highest dreams and it's worst nightmares.

Into No Man's Land: A Historical Memoir

Wednesday, May 3
6:30 p.m.

Come join us as we welcome author Irene Miller in discussing her book Into No Man's Land: A Historical Memoir.

Irene, a Holocaust survivor, will take you on a survival journey little written and known about. You will sleep in the winter under an open sky on the no man's land; you will freeze in a Siberian labor camp where the bears come to your door front. In Uzbekistan, you will live on boiled grass or broiled onions, and shiver with malaria. You will spend years in orphanages. When this is over you will wonder how a child with this background grows up to become a positive, creative, accomplished woman with a joy of living and love to share.
