Book Signing

Lee Chilcote and Judah Leblang
Thursday, December 5, 2019, 7pm
Join Lee Chilocote and Judah Leblang as they present pieces from their new work on themes of home, family, and connection. Leblang's new memoir, Echoes of Jerry: One Man's Search for His Deaf Uncle and His Own Voice explores the author's deep connection with his Uncle Jerry, who was born deaf, denied sign language, and who lived an isolated life torn between the Deaf and hearing worlds. In How to Live in Ruins, Lee Chilcote unfolds what happened when he and his wife bought a townhouse in Cleveland's Detroit Shoreway neighborhood right before the 2008 foreclosure crisis. In addition to reading short excerpts of their work, the authors will answer questions and sign copies of their work.

Bridgett Davis: The World According to Fannie Davis: My Mother's Life in the Detroit Numbers
Wednesday, December 11, 2019, 7pm
This month JumpStart Principal Gloria Ware will moderate a discussion of Bridgett Davis' moving memoir, The World According to Fannie Davis.

In 1958, the very same year that an unknown songwriter named Berry Gordy borrowed $800 to found Motown Records, a young mother from Nashville, Tennessee borrowed $100 from her brother to run a Numbers racket out of her home. That woman was Fannie Davis, Bridgett M. Davis' mother.

A daughter's moving homage to an extraordinary parent, The World According to Fannie Davis is also the suspenseful, unforgettable story about the lengths to which a mother will go to "make a way out of no way" to provide a prosperous life for her family -- and how those sacrifices resonate over time.
