Author Panel: Detroit's Favorite Steamboats

June 16 2018 | 12:00pm to 4:00pm

Free admission!

Join us at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Saturday, June 16 for a look back at the beloved steamboats of Detroit’s past. This afternoon of author presentations will revisit Bob-Lo boats Columbia and Ste. Claire, the graceful Tashmoo, palatial City of Detroit
III and the revolutionary Walk-in-the-Water of 1818. Produced in partnership with the Great Lakes Maritime Institute, authors Arthur Woodford, Patrick Livingston and Detroit Historical Society senior curator Joel Stone will celebrate the “Year of The Steamboat” by discussing these famous boats and signing their books afterward. 

This event is free and open to the public. Presentations will begin at noon. Books will be available for sale in the museum gift shop, and guests will be able to tour Dining on the Inland Seas, in the Robert M. Dossin Gallery, before or after the event.
