Charlie LeDuff Author Talk

From 6:00PM to n/a

Charlie LeDuff Author Talk
Saturday, June 16, 6:00 p.m.
at the Crooked Tree Arts Center Ross Stoakes Theater
In partnership with McLean & Eakin, we welcome Pulitzer-prize winner and bestselling author Charlie LeDuff and his newest book, Sh*tshow! The Country’s Collapsing…and the Ratings Are Great. This event is open to the public at no charge, but reservations are requested. To reserve your spot please call McLean & Eakin bookstore at 231.347.1180 or email
Sh*tshow! is a true, tragic, and distinctively American story, told from the parts of the country hurting the most. A soul-baring, irreverent, and iconoclastic writer, LeDuff speaks the language of everyday Americans, and is unafraid of getting his hands dirty. He scrambles the tired-old political, social, and racial categories, taking no sides–or prisoners. Old-school, gonzo-style reporting, this is both a necessary confrontation with the darkest parts of the American psyche and a desperately-needed reminder of the country’s best instincts.
Charlie LeDuff is an American journalist, formerly at the New York Times, the Detroit News, and Detroit’s Fox 2 News. The author of Detroit: An American Autopsy, US Guys: The True and Twisted Mind of the American Man, and Work and Other Sins: Life in New York City and Thereabouts, he lives near Detroit.
