Drew Philp, an idealistic Michigan college student from a working-class family, decided to live where he could make a difference - Detroit. "A $500 House in Detroit" is his raw, earnest account of rebuilding everything but the frame of his Poletown house while assimilating into the community around him.
Along with a short reading, Drew will show pictures of the house, neighborhood, and characters; take the audience "behind the scenes," and share stories not included in the book.
