Ann Arbor Ypsilanti Reads Event: Detroit Historical Society Curator Joel Stone Discusses Great Lakes Shipwrecks - Committed to the Deep: Exploring Underwater Treasures
This event was held on January 11, 2010 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
The very first ship on the upper Great Lakes, LaSalle's Griffon, sailed only a single voyage before disappearing beneath the waves. Since then, thousands of other vessels, along with their crews, have met the same fate. What remains of these ships and cargoes beneath the mighty Great Lakes? Join us for a fascinating journey, as we tour the mysteries of the Lakes through excellent photographs and amazing underwater video with Detroit Historical Society curator Joel Stone. This event will be held in conjunction with Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads 2010, which, this year focuses on the subject of Michigan.
