The Motown Lowdown

Thursday, September 14 › 4-5 p.m.

Fulton, William Woods University Library Auditorium

Angela Flournoy's "The Turner House" explores both the familial and socio-cultural dimensions of Detroit. Rooted in this tale is a deep sense of place that Yarrow Street evokes for many members of the Turner family. Join Dr. Anthony Cavaiani, WWU assistant professor of communications, for an interactive discussion about Detroit's troubled past and the revitalization now underway there. You'll be introduced to the concept of place-making that occurs within particular cities and have the opportunity to write and speak about its importance in transforming a city's identity.

Registration: Not required.
