"The Cranbrook Chronicles, a boomer kid's story", by Debbie Dailey VanderJagt. Growing up during the mid-twentieth century in Ann Arbor, the 1950s and '60s, had a flavor all its own. It was a time of change. Societies before this had revolutions, but never a revolution of peace. The youth of this era had a strong belief that they could change the world with love, peace, and freedom as their rallying cry. They believed the world could be a better place for all mankind. Not only did they believe it, but they were going to make it happen. Well, at least they were going to have a good time trying! For those who lived it, you can relate. The story is a light-hearted look at the time era through the eyes of a child that will bring you back to a time in place.
Barnes & Nobles, 3235 Washtenaw Ave. Free. 734-973-0846. [map]
