My Mitten: Super Bookworm
In words and photographs (old and modern), this book chronicles about a dozen of Detroit's most beautiful buildings (most built between the early 1900s and the early 1930s) that have suffered the ravages of time, weather, and political, economic and social changes since they were originally built. It is not as depressing a book as I originally expected. The stories and people behind these buildings are fascinating, and they remind me that the city of Detroit had a grand and sparkling past. I see some of that grandness and sparkle slowly returning to the city but in different ways. I am excited and hopeful about Detroit's future!
