The Detroit Chapter of the Women’s National Book Association (WNBA) will be celebrating National Reading Group Month at the Baldwin Public Library on Wednesday, October 10 at 6:30 p.m.
Michigan authors D.E. Johnson and Natalie Bakopoulos will be featured at the event. Johnson is the author of Detroit Breakdown, The Detroit Electric Scheme and Motor City Shakedown and Ms. Bakopoulos is the author of The Green Shore.
The third in Johnson's Will Anderson series, Detroit Breakdown follows Will and Elizabeth Hume into their next adventure, now behind the walls of the infamous Eloise Hospital, the massive asylum west of Detroit. Filled with Johnson’s trademark roller-coaster plot, nuanced characters, and brilliant historical research, Detroit Breakdown is a compelling, dark mystery set in the once flourishing Paris of the West.
In The Green Shore, award-winning debut novelist Natalie Bakopoulos uses stunning prose and profound empathy to vividly illuminate a seminal yet little explored moment in Greek history—the 1967 coup d’état, which ushered in a 7-year-period of devastating brutality and repression.
“Our members look forward to greeting fellow book lovers and enjoying perspectives shared with D.E. Johnson and Natalie Bakopoulos, our featured authors this year! All are welcome to join us for the free event,” said Annette Haley, President of the Detroit Chapter of the Women’s National Book Association.
Naturally, copies of Detroit Breakdown and The Green Shore will be available for sale from Book Beat Bookstore at the event.
