Countdown to ARmada-Geddon

There are two kinds of people in this universe:  those that come in all eager for their summer reading, and those that come in looking like Socrates reaching for a hot cup of hemlock.

Kids, let me assure you that it's not that bad.  It is, in fact, fabulous. 

So, whether you need Mr. Hundey's history fun pack (The History of the World in 6 Glasses, A Little History of the World, and the Princeton Review's Cracking the AP World History Exam), or you need Fahrenheit 451, Catch-22, A Farewell to Arms, The Things They Carried, 1984, Of Mice and Men, or any of the other incredible bits of literature out there, be assured we have 'em.  And at 20% off list price, which can save you a lot of dough.

We're really starting to kick off the Armada-Geddon preparations. 

We're hosting local author, Alan Naldrett, author of Lost Towns of Eastern Michigan
Many of eastern Michigan's old boomtowns and sleepy villages are faded memories. Nature reclaimed the ruins of some while progress paved over the rest. Discover the stories of lost communities hidden in plain sight or just off the beaten track. The vanished religious colony of Ora Labora fell into a state of near-constant inebriation when beer became the only safe liquid to drink. Lake St. Clair swallowed up the unique currency of Belividere along with the place that issued it. Abandoned towns still crumble within Detroit's city limits. Alan Naldrett delves into the fascinating history of eastern Michigan's lost settlements.

Naldrett divides his time between being a librarian, lecturer and author, having written and co-written three local history books and a Michigan history book as well as a number of history columns. He is a life member of the Chesterfield Historical Society and the New Baltimore Historical Society, and a past vice-chairman of the Macomb County Historical Commission. Naldrett earned a bachelor's degree at Michigan State University and master's degrees in information science and archival science. 

He'll be here from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 3. 

Then we'll have our good friends from Animal Encounters come visit for stories and animal fun.  Check out Mike Roberts and Chubby.  Chubby is our favorite gator pal.
