Detroit Breakdown—Madness in Old Detroit
D. E. Johnson, author of The Detroit Electric Scheme and Motor City Shakedown, will discuss his new book, Detroit Breakdown. In this latest book, Will Anderson and Elizabeth Hume are called to the vast Eloise Insane Asylum outside of Detroit, where Elizabeth’s cousin Paul is a patient, and now a murder suspect. Johnson will talk about Wayne County’s infamous Eloise Hospital, an insane asylum that once held 10,000 patients at a time, along with some of the historical curiosities he found while researching his latest book. A book signing will follow the presentation.
