The library remains closed until further notice as we follow safety measures for containing the spread of coronavirus. We were sad to cancel our event with author Joe Grimm, but we had already recorded this interview with the man behind the Faygo Book, so we still wanted to share that via our podcast!
We had a great chat with Joe Grimm, author of The Faygo Book" the social history of a company that has forged a bond with a city and its residents for more than a century...The story of a pop, a people, and a place! Joe Grimm previously wrote the book Coney Detroit with Katherine Yung (Wayne State University Press, 2012). A lifelong Detroit-area resident and twenty-five-year veteran of the Detroit Free Press, Grimm is a Michigan State University journalism professor. His favorite Faygo flavor is Rock & Rye.
