2017 Big Read


The Bay View Education Department is happy to announce author Tom Stanton’s non-fiction book and New York Times Best Seller "Terror in the City of Champions" as our selection for the 2017 Big Read. The setting of this true story is Detroit in the 1930s and is filled with the confluence of hard luck, hope, violence, and victory. Tom will be holding the members only discussion on Wednesday afternoon, July 19, 2017 at Evelyn Hall from 3:00-4:30 p.m.

The public book talk/reading will take place Thursday, 7:30-9:00 p.m. at Voorhies Hall.  McLean and Eakin Book Sellers will have books available for sale at both events and, of course, at their store, at any time before and after his appearance.
