Posted By on Sat, Feb 4, 2012 at 11:30 AM

Here’s a very cool treat for anyone who can be in the Oak Park area on Sunday afternoon. Mitch Ryder will be signing copies of his new autobiography Devils & Blue Dresses: My Wild Ride as a Rock and Roll Legend at Book Beat (26010 Greenfield, Oak Park) between 12:30 – 2:20 p.m.

According to the press release, “Mitch Ryder, the legendary "unsung hero" of Michigan rock and roll will be presenting and signing his new autobiography Devils & Blue Dresses: My Wild Ride as a Rock and Roll Legend, at the Book Beat bookstore This is a rare opportunity to meet and hear Ryder speak in a small and intimate setting This event is free and open to the general public. To reserve an autographed copy of Devils & Blue Dresses, you can order online or call (248) 968-1190 His music will be available next door from our neighbors at Street Corner Music.”

Anyone familiar with Book Beat can tell you that it is one of the best bookstores in the world, and it is a wonderfully intimate place to hear someone as respected as Ryder. It should be a great afternoon. If you go, be sure to pop next door to Streetcorner Records, one of our favorite record stores in Metro Detroit.
