Michigan Notable Author Lisa Sukenic Visits Schoolcraft Library

Join us for a discussion with Michigan Notable author Lisa Sukenic about her book “Miles From Motown”.  Written in verse, it is a coming of age story of 7th grader Georgia Johnson.  The year is 1967 , Georgia’s family has moved and her brother has been deployed to Vietnam. She tries to cope by entering “The Spirit of Detroit” poetry contest hoping for a win!


Lisa  Sukenic was born in Detroit.  She landed her first job in Kalamazoo where she taught at Kazoo School for 18 years.  She is now an educator at the University of Chicago Lab Schools.
