The Michigan Humanities Council is pleased to announce its long-awaited 2013-14 Great Michigan Read title.
Annie’s Ghosts is part memoir, part detective story and part history. As the author, Washington Post associate editor and Detroit native Steve Luxenberg, tries to understand his mom’s reasons for hiding her sister’s existence, he takes readers on a journey into his mother’s world of the 1930s and ’40s, where he explores how a poor, immigrant family manages life with a child who has special needs. This is a story about family secrets, personal journeys, genealogy, mental disability and illness, poverty and immigration.
The Great Michigan Read, a program of the Michigan Humanities Council, is a free statewide initiative that aims to connect us together at Michiganians by exploring and discussing a common book. All Michiganians are invited to participate – organizations and businesses can register to partner and we can help connect individuals with local partners for participation options. All registered partners can receive free supplemental materials – reader’s guides, teacher’s guides, bookmarks and more. Select nonprofit partners are eligible to receive free copies of the book.
Pre-registration is now open for the 2013-14 Great Michigan Read featuring Annie’s Ghosts
