Lunch & a Book September 2013

On Thursday, September 12 at noon, we will be discussing:

Say nice things about Detroit by Scott Lasser — The author will be joining us via Skype as we discuss this compelling urban portrait and touching love story. In a racially polarized, economically collapsing city a man struggles with the double shooting death of a high school classmate and her brother while still mourning the death of his own teenage son and coping with his mother's dementia. A starred review Booklist suggests: "Forget the grime and crime, political corruption and economic decay. Lasser's Detroit may be a troubled city, but it is one whose vibrant soul is writ large in the small actions of its loyal citizens. With a serene and steady hand, Lasser's spare but intense tale is a smart, intimate homage to the power of second chances."

Elmore Leonard, 1925-2013

Author Elmore Leonard, age 87, died at his home at Bloomfield Hills. Perhaps best known for his gritty crime novels such as Get Shorty, Leonard was also a master of western stories such as 3:10 to Yuma which was made into a film in 2007 starring Russell Crowe. A long-time resident in the Detroit area, he won many writing awards in his lifetime including the Grand Master Award of the Mystery Writers of America.
