Famously Passionate and Moderate

Milliken: Michigan's Passionate Moderate, by Dave Dempsey, will be discussed when the Sierra Club Book Club meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday (Oct. 10) at Nicola’s Books in the Westgate Shopping Center in Ann Arbor. The book is a portrait of Michigan’s longest-serving governor, a Republican who was born in Traverse City and fought in World War II. Milliken was lieutenant governor from 1965 to 1969, and was then voted into four-year terms in 1970, 1974, and 1978. The author is policy advisor for the Michigan Environmental Council.
