Our presentors today were Chris Edwards and Elaine Weeks, co-authors of "5,000 Ways You Know You’re From Detroit"
Although Canadian, Mr. Edwards and Ms. Weeks have a love affair with the City of Detroit.  They focused their talk on the City being the Arsenal of Democracy in WWII and leading the car boom in the 1950s which led to greater mobility and independence for baby boomers.  Their book (available on Amazon) is close to 500 pages with over 1,400 pictures of Detroit music icons, TV & radio personalities, food & drink & entertainment venues, and local landmarks.
Mr. Edwards closed with the comment that Detroit’s current comeback is in the DNA of the city and its people.
