Detroit…Why The Circus Left Town author visit with Robert Riley
Wednesday, November 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Meeting Room
Detroit—Why the Circus Left Town is a definitive memoir of Robert Riley’s life and career. It explores the causes of the decline in the industry he loves and what we might be able to do to restore the vitality and exuberance that once made Motown the epicenter of America’s love affair with the automobile.
He worked for companies that sold automotive parts and systems, giving him a unique perspective as an outsider and an insider at the same time. Writing with a lively, albeit curmudgeon style, he entertains readers with his wry wit and incisive comments.
