Michigan Author Don Faber, author of “The Boy Governor: Steven T. Mason and the Birth of Michigan Politics”, will visit Cooley Law School June 27 to talk about his latest book. The book tells the story of Michigan’s first governor and dominant political figures in the state’s early development.
Faber’s book captures Governor Mason’s youthful idealism and visionary accomplishments, including his advocacy for a strong state university and fighting for the creation of the Soo Locks.
“We are fortunate to have Mr. Don Faber, a two time ‘Michigan Notable Book’ author, with us to share his insights into the history of our first governor,” said Duane Strojny, Cooley Law School’s associate dean for library and instructional support. “Governor Mason was a young but forceful leader in the early development of the state and Don does a great analysis of the boy governor his recent book.”
The event takes place at 5 p.m. at Cooley Law School’s Brennan Library Center for Research and Study, 330 South Washington Square in Lansing. It is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase and signing during the event.
