Quite A Story

I was struck by not just the story of the writer's search to uncover his Mother's secret, but the sub story of Eloise, the setting that housed thousands of "inmates", AKA people who may have had a disability. Eloise was located right in Detroit, so that fascinated me. It employed thousands of people, as well. It was like a huge city, with its own livestock farm, cannery, dairy cows, RIGHT in Detroit! It was demonstrative of how different the mental health system is now. In good ways.

Forced Fun

I read this when I participated in the community reads program from another library. It's one of the first Non-fiction, other than books for school, that I have read. I thought it was well written and rather interesting... AND THE AUTHOR IS FROM FLINT, MI!
