Joel Stone, senior curator for the Detroit Historical Society, will address members of the Book Club of Grosse Ile at the annual dinner meeting on Friday, February 15th.  The evening will begin with cocktails followed by dinner at 7 and Stone's presentation at 8.  He will speak about his publication, Floating Palaces of the Great Lakes..   This writing revisits the important era of steam-powered ships, which provided one of the most reliable, comfortable and elegant transportation options on the Great Lakes at that time. His books will be available for purchase after his discussion.  

As senior curator, Mr Stone oversees the artifacts in the Detroit HIstorical Museum, the Dossin Great Lakes Museum, and a quarter million artifacts in the city of Detroit's collection.  Raised in the Detroit area, he has studied here and abroad, and is a board member of the Association for Great Lakes Maritime History.
