Author Talk: The Faygo Book
Thursday, January 23, 2020
The Faygo Book is the social history of a company that has forged a bond with a city and its residents for more than a century.

These stories and facts will tickle the taste buds and memories of Detroiters and Faygo lovers everywhere. Registration required. Faygo will be served.
