The Espresso Book Machine
Jamie Paisley / WKAR-MSU

There is a café located on the first floor of the Michigan State University Library, it serves the usual goods you’d expect. Light snacks and a few beloved liquid forms of caffeine. But one floor above it, there is an Espresso Machine. It doesn’t make coffee, however. It makes books.


Scott Pohl / WKAR

There are 83 counties in Michigan, and a local author thinks there's something interesting about every one of them.  In fact, Barbara VanderMolen has written a two-volume set of books called "Discovering Michigan County by County: Your A-Z Guide to Each of the 83 Counties in the Great Lakes State."

Current State's Scott Pohl speaks with the author, who says it's for anyone who likes to explore every nook and cranny of the state.
