Soupy Sales and the Detroit Experience, by Dr. Fran Shor - Fran is in the news again and thought some of the other Lebo folk might enjoy this article that just appeared in one of the local Detroit area newspapers. Fran has a new book that was something of a departure for him. Here's a link to the publisher's website where there's a good synopsis of the book: https://www.cambridgescholars.com/product/978-1-5275-7553-0
Passages of Rebellion, by Dr. Fran Shor - Fran's first novel follows the semi-autobiographical protagonist, Frank Goodman, in his antiwar and anti-draft activities during the turbulent years of 1967-1970. The novel, moving back and forth in time, explores his interactions with a wide variety of characters – from his fellow student protestors and draft resisters to his wife, Mary Browne, and a bombing suspect who accompanies Frank as he flees to Canada to escape capture for an abortive raid on a draft office.
