The ADL is a stop on the Michigan Notable Books author tour this year! We will be hosting Michael Zadoorian, author of one of this year's winners, BEAUTIFUL MUSIC, for a presentation and book signing. Zadoorian also wrote THE LEISURE SEEKER, THE LOST TIKI PALACES OF DETROIT, and SECOND HAND.
The MNB staff described BEAUTIFUL MUSIC this way: "Set in early 1970s Detroit, a divided city still reeling from its violent summer of 1967, Beautiful Music is the story of one young man’s transformation through music. Danny is a husky, pop radio–loving loner balancing a dysfunctional home life with the harsh realities of freshman year at a high school marked by racial turbulence. Beautiful Music is a funny and poignant story about the power of music and its ability to save one’s soul." Check out our copy today!
Copies will also be available for purchase, thanks to the Adrian College bookstore. $30.00, cash or check only.

The Toledo War was one of the strangest, as well as bloodless, wars ever. Meet folks like Major Stickney, who named his sons One and Two and his daughters Indiana and Florida. The fighting itself was thwarted by the Great Black Swamp, in which militias formed by Michigan and Ohio to battle for the town of Toledo both got lost for two weeks and never engaged in battle. The closest they got was yelling taunts at each other across the Maumee River. Battle gear included a barrel of whiskey and broom handles from the local hardware store.The only casualties were vegetables and unfortunate farm animals. Somehow, Michigan persevered and traded Toledo for the Upper Peninsula, passed go and finally became a bona-fide state in 1837.
This presentation will be given by Michigan author Alan Naldrett.
