Township library hosts two author events

This September, Bloomfield Township Public Library will hold two unique author talks which are open and free to the public, with no registration required.

On Tuesday, September 12, author Paul Vachon will discuss a photographic account of significant events in Detroit's history, which he has presented in his newly released second edition of Detroit: An Illustrated Timeline. Vachon is an author and freelance writer who specializes in covering Michigan travel, business and popular culture.

Copies of his book will be available for purchase.

On Tuesday, September 19, photographer, architectural historian and author Dale A. Carlson will take guests on a journey as he examines the histories of 20 architecturally significant live theater and music venues in the Detroit area. He will explain how these dazzling designs were created by noted Detroit architects, and share tales of some of the legendary artists who performed in them.

Both lectures are at 7 p.m.

“The library is honored to host Paul Vachon and Dale A. Carlson as integral parts of our programming. Their dedication to uncovering the layers of Detroit's past and their ability to bridge history with the present are a testament to their expertise,” said Brooke Hoskins, assistant department head of adult services. “We are looking forward to celebrating Detroit's heritage and cultural significance.”
