Stephen Mack Jones, Michigan Notable Author Tour

May 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

From the wealthy suburbs to the remains of Detroit’s bankrupt factory districts, August Snow is a fast-paced tale of murder, greed, sex, economic cyber-terrorism, race and urban decay.

Tough, smart, and struggling to stay alive, August Snow is the embodiment of Detroit. The son of an African-American father and a Mexican-American mother, August grew up in the city’s Mexicantown and joined the police force only to be drummed out by a conspiracy of corrupt cops and politicians. But August fought back; he took on the city and got himself a $12 million wrongful dismissal settlement that left him low on friends. He has just returned to the house he grew up in after a year away, and quickly learns he has many scores to settle.

We welcome author Stephen Mack Jones as part of the Michigan Notable Book Author Tour. Stephen Mack Jones is a published poet, award-winning playwright, and recipient of the prestigious Kresge Arts in Detroit Literary Fellowship. He survived a number of years in advertising and marketing communications.

This program is made possible thanks to support from the Michigan Humanities Council, the Library of Michigan, the Library of Michigan Foundation, Meijer and the Michigan Center for the Book. Media partners are MittenLit.com., City Pulse, Queue Advertising and Gennara Photography.
