Miss Bridge Michigan's 'Arc of Justice' book club chat? Here's the video

Bridge Book club 'Arc of Justice'

Did you miss Wednesday’s Bridge book club discussion of “Arc of Justice: A Saga of Race, Civil Rights and Murder in the Jazz Age?” You’re in luck! We recorded our Zoom conversation, which featured author Kevin Boyle and Daniel Baxter, owner of the Detroit home where the events of the story transpired. More than 100 Bridge readers joined us for this engaging discussion.

Boyle discussed the process of writing “Arc of Justice,” the enduring legacy of the case and of housing discrimination in northern cities, growing up in Detroit, and the parallels between the Jazz Age and today in Detroit and our nation.

Baxter gave Bridge readers a tour of the Sweet home, which his family has owned since 1958, and discussed the restoration efforts underway and the work that is being done to turn the home into a museum

Bridge Michigan hosts bimonthly book club discussions on books with ties to Michigan. Our May/June book selection was "The World According to Fannie Davis" by Bridgett M. Davis. In October, we will discuss  “The Women of the Copper Country” by Mary Doria Russell.

More than 500 Bridge members received a free copy of “Arc of Justice” so they could take part in our August book club. If you would like a free e-book copy of future book club selections, join Bridge Club today.
