Ben Hamper Reading at Barnes & Noble in Flint Township
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.

My comment: the Barnes & Noble is in Flint Twp. Nothing against Flint Twp. but that tells you all you need to know about Flint these days...and for the last 30 years. When I last lived in Flint, someone was trying to open a bookstore downtown... it didn't last too long.ReplyDelete
I guess, you haven't been downtown to know that there IS a bookstore! Pages bookstore and it has been there for quite some time. I don't understand why stating that something is in Flint Twp., it's true locations, denotes anything about Flint as a whole. Negative, negativie people....part of the Flint's problem, along with the crime.ReplyDelete
You beat me to it. I buy books at Pages every time I'm in Flint. It's a nice book shop.Delete
One of the things I discuss in Teardown is the regional approach to planning and economic development. Flint is part of a larger economy in Genesee County, and it makes more sense to figure out ways to improve the entire region.
Rivethead is required reading for anyone from Flint. Great book.ReplyDelete
