Mitch Ryder (that’s right, THE Mitch Ryder– the “unsung heart and soul of the Motor City rock & roll scene ”*) is coming to YDL.  Mitch will talk with Ann Arbor 107one’s Martin Bandyke about the ups and downs of a stellar career that has spanned six decades. Mitch will also discuss his freshly-penned autobiography, Devils and Blue Dresses: My Wild Ride as a Rock and Roll Legend, and his recent, critically-acclaimed CD The Promise, produced by the legendary Don Was. The evening will include a Q&A with audience members. Copies of Devils and Blue Dresses will be available for purchase [cash only], and Mitch will be signing these.  Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to visit with the singularly talented Mitch Ryder, brought to you with support from the Bank of Ann Arbor.

Catch Mitch earlier in the day as he performs live from noon to 1 p.m. at the Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch at the corner of Liberty and Division in downtown Ann Arbor.

Delicious foods : a novelBy Hannaham, James

Hannaham’s book is the engrossing story of a Southern family’s disintegration after the death of husband and father, Nat Hardison. It is narrated by Eddie, the couple’s son, as well as an unusual inanimate character named Scotty, and Eddie’s mother, Darlene, absent both emotionally and physically during much of his childhood, unable to cope with the intense emotional burden, local injustice, and overwhelming grief she experiences when Nat is murdered. Eleven year-old Eddie spends a lot of time with his widowed Aunt Bethella, but at one point he decides to try to find his absent mother. Boldly navigating the seedy underbelly of the streets, Eddie’s path leads him to the horrible prison-like agricultural farming enterprise called Delicious Foods, from which he barely escapes with his life. A bold, harrowing story told with amazing love and respect for its characters.
