Barbara Henning, author of Ferne: A Detroit Story, will be vis­it­ing the library on May 2, 2023 at 6pm. The pro­gram, will have Barbara Henning do a pre­sen­ta­tion fol­lowed by a Q&A. Ferne: A Detroit Story is a biog­ra­phy about Barbara’s moth­er, Ferne. Through Ferne’s sto­ry, we also learn more about the his­to­ry of Detroit. The pre­sen­ta­tion will look at how Barbara brought to light her moth­er’s sto­ry, using fam­i­ly pho­tos, news­pa­per clip­pings, and extracts from his­tor­i­cal sources in 1920s through 1950s Detroit.
