Susan Whitall rocks out! The envy of many aspiring rock journalists is making her way to the Ann Arbor District Library to discuss her incredible career and some of her most memorable interviews with the biggest rock stars and pop culture icons. Whitall is one of the leading national observers of the historic Detroit music scene. She was one of the women on staff with the legendary Creem Magazine in the 1970’s and eventually earned the job as the publication’s editor. Since the 1980’s she has been a feature writer for the Detroit News. She also authored the books Fever: The Fast Life and Mysterious Death of Little Willie John and the Birth of Soul and Women of Motown. She will also be signing books after her discussion.
