Teardown Book Signing at Barnes & Noble

Thanks to everyone at the Teardown book signing at Barnes & Noble in Flint last night. A great crowd. I was happy to see so many old friends and meet some of the longtime readers of Flint Expatriates face to face. And there was no shortage of great Flint Artifacts, like this t-shirt.

The biggest surprise was my sister, Marty, who flew in from Seattle to attend. She managed to hide out until the last minute. And Darcy Bowden from Bassett Place was there. And Mike Munley. And Andrew Gauthier from Civic Park. And my old pal Joe Serna's mom. And Duane Butterworth. And David Matta. And Tom Bade! And, okay, I'll stop now.

Looking forward to the Teardown launch party at Luigi's on Davison Road from 5-7pm today. It's open to the public and books will be available for sale and signing.

Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. 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
