Campus sit-ins, Vietnam War protests and the Black Panther Party: In "War As They Knew It," Michael Rosenberg perfectly captures what life was like both on and off the football fields of college campuses during the remarkable era of the 1960s - '70s. He details how both Schembechler and Hayes strived to make their football programs a model for the rest of society — a counter to the counter-culture. At the same time, they struggled to cope with the shifting political landscape and the volatile atmosphere on their campuses.

Michael Rosenberg, a sports columnist for the Detroit Free Press and, takes us back to those unsettling times as he discusses his new book. This event includes a booksigning, with books available for purchase.
