Editor ML Liebler & contributors discuss and sign Respect: The Poetry of Detroit Music, in conversation with Pat Thomas

Moderated by Pat Thomas.

While there have been countless books written about Detroit, none have captured its incredible musical history like this one. Detroit artists have forged the paths in many music genres, producing waves of creative energy that continue to reverberate across the country and around the world. This anthology both documents and celebrates this part of Detroit's history, capturing the emotions that the music inspired in its creators and in its listeners. The range of contributors speaks to the global impact of Detroit's music scene--Grammy winners, Pulitzer Prize winners, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and poet laureates all come together in this rich and varied anthology.

Joining ML Liebler will be Lolita Hernandez, Joe Henry, Art Lysak, Lisa Recker, Peter Harris, Patty Seyburn, Heather Bourbeau, Champtown, and Charlie Brice.
