This weeks speaker was Ms. Karen Dybis, the author of four books about Detroit and our local history.  Her latest is Secret Detroit: A guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure.  She described it as a travel guide meets fun facts about the city.
There are always the iconic sites such as Comerica Park and the DIA but there is also the giant bowling pin outside a Mexican restaurant on Dix, the giant cow’s head on a former ice cream shop on Mack, the vertical El Camino near Eastern Market, and the Monumental Kitty that greets you entering Corktown.  Other items of interest include the Tiny Homes on Cass, the Quonset huts with actual living areas on 16th street, and the Lincoln St. Art Park that offers classes on recycling and sustainability.
Ms. Dybis believes it’s our collective job to tell Detroit’s story as it goes through its true renaissance.  She encourages all to look for Detroit’s “secret sites”.
