Radio and TV personality Colleen Burcar

Colleen Burcar to Speak at the Rochester Hills Public Library

Colleen Burcar, a radio and TV personality in the Detroit area for many years, including two decades with Dick Purtan, will discuss her books at the Rochester Hills Public Library on Tuesday, April 12 at 7 to 8:30 p.m. Burcar was a columnist for the Detroit News and has authored numerous books on the state of Michigan, including Michigan Curiosities and her latest, It Happened in Michigan. Her presentation will cover some of the remarkable events that are part of Michigan's rich history including the Orphan Train, Japanese balloon bombs, the most devastating school disaster ever recorded, and William Beaumont's unsurpassed medical discovery of 1822. She'll also include a wide range of the state's most interesting curiosities from a place you can kiss a moose for good luck to a baffling country road that pulls your car backwards uphill. After the presentation, books will be available for purchase.

Registration is required and open to those with a Rochester Hills Public library card. To register go to the Events Calendar at or call 248-656-2900.
