The Story Behind The Little Brown Jug
When the Michigan Wolverines arrived in Minneapolis to battle the Minnesota Gophers in 1903, a simple 30¢ Red Wing stoneware jug began football’s first rivalry trophy game. Authors Ken Magee and Jon M. Stevens will discuss their new book The Little Brown Jug: The Michigan-Minnesota Football Rivalry, and the history of this legendary contest between the two teams Wednesday, September 10, 7 pm at the Malletts Creek Branch.
This event includes a book signing and books will be for sale.
