Join us for a virtual conversation with Joel Stone, author of "Floating Palaces of the Great Lakes: A History of Passenger Steamships on the Inland Seas" and curator for the Dossin Great Lakes Museum and the Detroit Historical Society.
Through much of the nineteenth century, steam-powered ships provided one of the most reliable and comfortable transportation options on the Great Lakes. Let's revisit this elegant era of maritime history and the floating palaces that once navigated Great Lakes waters. We'll discuss how Stone brings history to life in his writing and answer questions from attendees.
