I grew up in Detroit. The east side. It's a thing. But I spent a lot of my young adulthood in an area called the Cultural Center. My alma mater, Wayne State University is in the area, as is the Detroit Institute of Arts with the lovely Diego Rivera mural room, the Charles Wright Museum of African American History, the Detroit Historical Museum, and the main branch of the Detroit Public Library. I spent many mornings preparing news copy as a young reporter in the Maccabees Building--the former home of WDET-FM, public radio. The Cultural Center of Detroit is one of my soul places. That's why I'm so excited to be participating in a book event a the Public Library in early March.
