An Evening with Michigan Author
Jeff Smith!

Thursday, September 7
7:00p.m.

Jeff Smith will be at Briggs Library to discuss his fascinating book, Becoming Amish.

Becoming Amish tells the true story of Bill and Tricia Moser, who were living in one of America's wealthiest communities -- Grosse Pointe, Michigan -- when they stepped away and began a journey that led to full immersion in a horse-and-buggy Amish life.

We are pleased to announce that Bill Moser will be joining Jeff Smith on September 7th to discuss Becoming Amish and his family's story.
