Virtual Event,

Stefan Szymanski and Silke-Maria Weineck discuss their new book City of Champions, which explores the history of Detroit through the stories of its most gifted athletes and most celebrated teams, with University of Michigan historian Stephen Ward. Szymanski and Weineck link iconic events in the history of Motown sports to the city's shifting fortunes—from Ty Cobb and Hank Greenberg to the Bad Boys, from Joe Louis and Gordie Howe to the Malice at the Palace. Driven by the conviction that sports not only mirror society but also have a special power to create both community and enduring narratives that help define a city’s sense of self, City of Champions is a unique history of the most American of cities.
