    Old Books: Trash or Treasure?

    Hear popular Michigan historian Larry Massie reveal what makes one old book a valuable collector’s item and another practically worthless. Massie will illustrate his points with a large display of books from his own 35,000-volume collection. Following his talk, Massie will evaluate books, pamphlets, or other printed material brought in by audience members. Limit of two items per person, please.

    A researcher, historian, writer, old book appraiser, museum consultant, and dynamic storyteller, Larry Massie travels both Michigan peninsulas to share his enthusiasm of Michigan’s heritage. His colorful telling of true stories will entertain anyone who’s felt the lure of glorious Lake Michigan. He has authored 22 popular Michigan history books; the most recent is  The Allure of Michigan’s Past , a collection of Michigan anecdotes.
