The First Governor and The Birth of Michigan Politics to be Discussed at Cooley Law School
June 18, 2013 – Don Faber, author of The Boy Governor: Steven T. Mason and the Birth of Michigan Politics, will visit Cooley Law School in Lansing to talk about his latest book. The book tells the story of Michigan’s first governor and dominant political figure 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 is free and open to the public. The discussion will be held Thursday, June 27, 5 p.m. at Cooley Law School’s Brennan Library Center for Research and Study, 330 S. Washington Sq., Lansing, Mich. Books will be available for purchase and signing during the event.
