Rob St. Mary, author of The Orbit Magazine Anthology: Re-Entry, a 2016 Michigan Notable Book, will visit the library in the Friends Auditorium. A metro Detroit native, St. Mary has created an oversized, heavily illustrated volume that not only details Orbit’s irreverent tone and unique editorial features, but those of its predecessors, White Noise (1978-1980) and Fun: The Magazine for Swinging Intellectuals (1986-1990). Those two publications were created by Jerry Peterson, a.k.a. Jerry Vile, who wrote the foreword to St. Mary’s book. Registration is requested. Limit 100. Register below or call the Adult Reference Desk at (248) 246-3727.
Copies of The Orbit Magazine Anthology: Re-Entry will be available for purchase and signing by the author after the presentation.
