Michigan holiday season memories: Up Grand River Avenue and beyond

The holiday season in Michigan holds special memories for everyone – who can forget the leaping reindeer emerging from the entranceway high above Hudson’s at the corner at Woodward and Grand River? Co-authors Jon Milan and Gail Offen invite you to join them for a virtual program at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2, sponsored by the Brighton District Library, that features a colorful tour of seasonal highlights throughout the state – past and present!

Tag along for a virtual ride with Gail and Jon for “Michigan Holiday Season Memories – Up Grand River Avenue and beyond.” They will whisk you off to a festive reconjuring of Holiday memories – from Hudson’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the arrival of Santa; to breakfast at Crowley’s with old Saint Nick; from the animated windows along Woodward to the automotive-themed, tree-lined corridors of the Ford Rotunda; to the candlelight walks in old Frankenmuth; to America’s tallest singing Christmas tree in Muskegon.

The Brighton District Library invites you to take a step back in time with the authors for an hour of festive fun as they take a peek through the frosty windows of family memories that have marked the holiday seasons throughout the years, complete with archival photos and film footage, featuring nearly 100 years of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s Cheer.
