Author Laura Bien offers up a diverse sampling of offbeat and lighthearted stories that will transplant readers to the bygone days of Ypsilanti, from the fight Ypsilanti waged against standardized time to the gloom apparent in an Ypsilantian's Depression-era grocery receipt, and from Jackson's glowing pork chop to the time Ypsilantians staunchly defended themselves against accusations of "sloppy speech." Enjoy these quirky tales and learn what life used to be like in this fascinating city.
