Tucson Salvage, Brian Smith

Author Brian Smith writes about the kind of folks most people tend to ignore.

Addicts and former addicts, the homeless, the downtrodden, and those who struggle with depression and mental illness.

Smith, a former editor for the Metro Times, has released a new book, called Tucson Salvage, chronicling the lives of residents in his hometown of Tucson, Arizona. 

He’ll be reading at the Book Beat in Oak Park this Saturday and at the Lo-Fi Bar in Ann Arbor on Sunday.

CultureShift’s Amanda LeClaire spoke with him about his new book and what it means to find home.
