Book Release & Signing
THINGS I DO IN DETROIT
by the Nain Rouge
Join us for a celebration of the release of “Things I Do in Detroit” by the Nain Rouge, written and photographed by Dave Krieger. The book chronicles the travels of the Nain Rouge as he visits unique and iconic Detroit spots. Don’t miss this chance to get a copy of the book, signed by the imp, himself (not to mention Dave). It’s the easiest, and most fun, Holiday shopping you’ll do all year.
The Nain Rouge, a scheming red gnome, has been accused of all manner of mayhem in Detroit. If only the city could banish the crimson dwarf, its urban glory would be assured.
Or so the story goes. And like many stories told about Detroit, that one’s dead wrong.
In reality, the Nain Rouge is an ardent Detroit enthusiast and a great behind-the-scenes contributor to the city’s development and rich history. Finally exhausted by the many mischaracterizations of his role in his hometown, the Nain Rouge here publicly reveals himself. He does so by showing off the things he likes to do and the places he likes to go in his beloved Detroit, a city that, like him, has too often been maligned, misrepresented and misunderstood.
Photographer Dave Krieger, also a Detroit native, accompanied the Nain Rouge around town to chronicle its remarkable architectural gems, magnificent museums, unique activities, and vibrant culture.
