5000 Ways You Know You’re From Detroit

Our latest local history book is a Blast from the Past!

Released in the fall of 2017, 5000 Ways You Know You’re From Detroit is our seventh title celebrating the history of border cities of Detroit and Windsor.

At a whopping 480 pages, with over 1400 photos and illustrations about Detroit and area’s babyboomer years, this is no ordinary coffee table book. Branden Hunter, a reporter for the Michigan Chronicle, says, “... it might be the greatest book on the city I’ve ever read!”

About Elaine Weeks

How history was taught in my day: memorize lots of boring dates and facts, watch corny old black & white history films. There was one bright spot, however. Grade 9 history at Walkerville Collegiate with Miss Falls (Georgina) when she taught a section on local history and took us on a field trip to explore some of Windsor's built heritage. Due to a series of peculiar events, celebrating local history became part of my business. My company, Walkerville Publishing Inc., (partner is Chris Edwards) launched "The Walkerville Times" in 1999 and we produced 61 issues - the last in 2016. In 2004, we began producing local history books; that year we released "Best of The Times Magazine". Our current titles include 5000 Ways You Know You're From Detroit, 500 Ways You Know You're From Windsor, Walkerville - Whisky Town Extraordinaire, and Windsor Then - A Pictorial Essay of Windsor's Glorious Past. I also wrote a novel, Time Trespasser, that blends time travel with local history. I am working on a sequel. I am a writer, editor, blogger, photographer, mother, wife, sister, activist, traveller, gardener, knitter, glass is nearly full person.
