Current State #582 | July 30, 2015

Jul 30, 2015

Today on Current State: Lansing School Board President Peter Spadafore on transportation costs; Lansing's temporary "parklets"; a review of "The Given World" by Marian Palaia; the Isle Royale wolf population; and a new book on the history of Meridian Township.

Summer books usually bring to mind lighter fare. A page turning mystery or a paperback romance, maybe. But for those who don’t mind a heavier read this summer, our book reviewer Scott D. Southard gives us his take on "The Given World" by Marian Palaia.


Roller coasters by the lake. Summer homes and resort hotels on the shore. If you’re picturing Cedar Point in Ohio, guess again. This was Haslett, Michigan more than 100 years ago. Current State examines the early days of Meridian Township with Jane Rose, executive director of the Meridian Historical Village and author of "Meridian Township."
