 Many in the Lansing area know Lingg Brewer as a longtime Ingham County Clerk from 1977 to 1994, and then as a three-term Democratic State Representative.  Brewer also served as county commissioner and is an original founder of the Impression 5 Museum.

 

In his new book, “Dreams Gone Wrong,” the Lansing native recounts how the complexities of the 1960’s — the Vietnam War, local and national politics, drugs and protest — played out dramatically right here in East Lansing and at Michigan State University.
