Each month Current State Weekend host Emanuele Berry sits down with historian David Votta to rediscover forgotten bits of Michigan’s history. Votta is the Community Engagement Librarian at the Midwest Collaborative for Library Services.  This month they decided to discuss the history of werewolves in Michigan.

Votta says the people of the French pioneer period of the late 17th century had brought the legends of the "old world" with them.
