Detroit Poet and Wayne State University professor M.L. Leiber has edited a new, exciting book for Wayne State University Press called “Heaven Was Detroit.” The pages compile a comprehensive collection of creative essays that tell true stories of Detroit’s music over the decades, delving deep into the jazz, rock, blues, techno, hip-hop, country and, of course, Motown.
This book is a testament to Detroit music but also Detroit writers. And it’s yours when you make a gift of $30 a month to WDET on Friday, December 9th and Saturday the 10th. When you do that right now, you’re also paying for promotional air-time for ten youth-focused non-profits in Metro Detroit.
