ONCE IN A GREAT CITY by David Maraniss

September 30, 2015

David Maraniss spoke about his book, Once in a Great City, at Politics & Prose on Wednesday, September 30, 2015.

Journalist, historian, biographer, and a Washington Post associate editor, the award-winning Maraniss has written critically acclaimed books on events including the Vietnam War and the 1960 Rome Olympics, and turned out thorough, even definitive lives of figures ranging from Clinton and Obama to Clemente and Lombardi. Born in Detroit, Maraniss devotes the same wide-ranging consideration to this profile of his hometown in 1963, at the peak of its economic and socio-cultural promise, when both the auto industry and the UAW were strong, Motown and Aretha Franklin were poised to become national icons—and yet already strife and breakdown were in the air.
